John Donne once eloquently main- 
tained that, "No man is an island 
entire to itself; e\ery man is a piece 
of the continent, a part of the main." 

The same principle holds true for 
graduates of Eastern Kentuclr\' Uni- 
versity'. Whate\-er Eastern is, we 
have made it; whatever it is not, we 
have neglected to make. 

When we walked across the stages 
in Hiram Brock, the Ra\ine, or .Al- 
umni Coliseum, when we grasped 
that degree, we became a part of a 
family that now numbers some 
22,000. And. since that time, almost 
genetically, and obviously en\-iron- 
mentally, we became ambassadors 
of those frantic years we spent in 
Richmond. We have told the East- 
ern stor>' in our own wav's: in the 
classroom, over the coimter, behind 
the drawing board, on a canvas, at 
a board of trustees meeting, on the 
stage, or any number of places where 
people live and work together. 

WINTER, 1972 



We are Eastern Kentuck\' Univer- 
sity and we don't have to wear an 
EKU badge or spread a imiversit}' 
decal across the back windows of 
our automobiles to let the world 
know it. Simply by the wa\' we as- 
sume our responsibilities, we estab- 
lish the reputation of the university 
that spawned us. 

The graduate of an institution has 
no choice. If he refuses to claim the 
school diat granted Mm his degree, 
the school becomes an institution 
diat even its graduates won't identi- 
fy with. Other graduates in tiun 
suffer the consequences of such a 
reputation, however subtly estab- 
lished. 

Eastern graduates should not claim 
perfection for their Alma Mater for 
perfection is a state of mind rather 
tlian a realiU'. But, Eastern does 
offer any aspiring student many ad- 
vantages and those who kmow the 
Universitv' best, her graduates, can 
tell the future student that witli 



more authority than anyone else. If 
Eastern cannot help him pursue his 
particular interests, the alumni am- 
bassador can say so, too. 

To help Eastern continue to grad- 
uate solid citizens, graduates should 
look aroimd their communities and 
classrooms and talk to students who 
wall come to Richmond to join the 
EKU "family" and accept the re- 
sponsibilities that such status brings 
with it. In short, the Eastern story 
can be told best by those who know 
the details— the alumni. 

So, it is with this conviction that 
Eastern Kentucky University asks 
you, her alumni, to become the East- 
em informational specialists in your 
area, a kind of ambassadorial expert 
on your Alma Mater. We're asking 
you to talk to good potential students 
who can benefit from Eastern's pro- 
grams. We each have everything to 
gain and virtualh' nothing to lose . . . 
the kind of odds that makes winners 
of us all. EKlSl

THE EASTERN STUDENT ... at a glance 



JL he hiiical Eastern student is, 
like most students, his own '"man". 

He ma^■ let liis hair wave around 
his shoulders, or he mav .shave it all 
off to get a faster time in a swim 
meet. He is, no doubt, concemo<l 
about the issues that affect collos;- 
ians across the land, but he is nc\'er 
as destnictive as some, and seldom 
as apathetic as others. 

He is frequently a questioner who 
does not always accept his circum- 
stances for the same reasons that 
those who preceded him did. His 
values sometimes seem strange to his 
superiors, but he lives bv them even 
though it might be more convenient 
at times to do otherwise. Thus, he has 
become an unpredictable entit\', a 
combination of idealism, pragmatism, 
and realism, not vet touched bv the 
world that wnll later use these quali- 
ties for his own success and the suc- 
cess of .societv-at-large. 

Eastern's Office of Institutional 
Research has found that, in most re- 
spects, the tvpical Eastern student 
resembles his peers across the United 
States. 

He. like manv of the others, makes 
the curriculum his major considera- 
tion for chnosinn; his future Alma 
Mater. Unlike his cohorts, howe\'er, 
he rates a camnus \nsit and a talk 
with ETCU .students and friends as 
the second most imnortant factor in 
choosing Eastern as his .school. 

When he chooses Eastern, he finds 
a student bodv from varied back- 
STounds. Some 41% of them come 
from rural backgrounds, 33% from 
suburban metronolitan areas. The 
xemainder come from central citv 
metronolitan areas. 

.\cademicalK-. the brainpower of 
the EKU .scholar is much like that 
of other colleeians. Eor example, the 
1970 freshman class had an overall 
hieh school Grade Point Standing of 
2.70. The national average was 2.63. 

In most areas. Eastern students 
hover around the national mean, and 
if statistics are any indication, the 
academically inclined students are 
in vogue now more than ever. For 
example, the .\CT English scores in- 




dicate that the percentage of enter- 
ing freshmen who ranked in the 
upper half nationally on the .\CT 
English test rose over the last five 
years from 38.4% to 49.4%. Over the 
same five-year period, tlie percent- 
age of ACT Composite Scores for 
freshmen who ranked in the upper 
half nationally rose from 33.0% to 
44.3%. So, like college students 
across the country, Eastern's fresh- 
men improve academicallv each 
year. 

As might be expected, those who 
performed best in high school fol- 
lowed suit in college. Of those high 
school graduates in the upper 20% 
of their classes, some 37.4% of them 
achieve bet^veen a 3.0 (B) or 4.0 
(A) standing for their first vear in 
college while 77.8% of them had a 
2.0 (C) average or better. 

If, however, the Eastern student 
happens to have problems academic- 
ally and should he not make the 
minimum standing required of his 
particular class, he may be <iiven a 
second chance in one of Eastern's 25 
associate degree programs. In most 
cases attempts are made to help him 
before his second chance becomes 
necessary. 

An Academic Counseling and 
Learning Center, located in the 
Crabbe Library, offers indi\adual as- 



sistance in improving skills needed for 
college work: study skills, vocabular)-, 
spelhng, reading comprehension and 
speed, and writing recei\'e primary 
emphasis. After a short batten' of 
tests, students are scheduled for a 
counseling interview at which time 
test results are used to plan an im- 
pro\'ement program. The senice is 
free to registered universit)' students. 
In addition, a non-credit rapid read- 
ing and study skills course is offered 
each semester diu±ig the academic 
year. 

In short, the Eastern student bod\ 
is made up of a wide range of per- 
sonalities. ."Ml races, creeds, and col- 
ors li\e, work, and plav together in the 
shadows of academe. The problems 
\^-hich face the modem collegian are 
their problems. The collegiate re- 
actions to these problems are their 
reactions. But. for sure, there is no 
stereot^'ped college student today. We 
may quote statistics to tell you what 
he mav be or should be doing, but 
each student remains a separate en- 
Htv struggling in his own wav to find 
himself. 

It is Eastern's commitment to pro- 
\ide the student with the atmos- 
phere — academic, social, and spir- 
itual — most conducive to the fruit- 
ful conclusion of his search.

THE EASTERN KENTUCKY UNIVERSITY ALUMNUS 



Volume 11 / Number 1 



Special Informational Issue 

A frequently asked question by Eastern Kentucky Uni- 
versity Aliunni is "What can I do to help Eastern?" The 
query punctuates ex'ery large gathering of EKU graduates, 
and appears in much of the correspondence received in the 
Alumni Office. In this issue of the Alumnus magazine, 
we are departing from our usual format to provide you, 
oiu- alumni, with the answers to this and other questions. 
And, with these answers, we are hoping that )'ou will serve 
as an information specialist about youi Alma Mater and 
will use your knowledge to help inform prospective stu- 
dents, the general pubHc, govenmient officials, and poten- 
tial benefactors about Eastern Kentucky Univ^ersity. 



WHAT ALUMNI CAN CONTmUTE 

'wLtkout a ckeckbook) 



Not all alumni can afford an annual contribution. Others want to 
do more. Here we explore the many ways alumni can support 
Eastern Kentucky University other than, or in addition to, the annual 
check. 



EKU VORTFOUO 

A brief examination of Eastern's history is coupled with nineteen ques- 
tions that potential students most frequently ask about the University. 



WHAT HAS EASTERN DONE FOR ME? 

What Eastern has done and is presently doing are linked to the 
graduate and his stake in the future of his Alma Mater.

THE COVER 

On the cover of this issue is a view of the 
buildings which help moke up Eastern's new 
plaza. In the foreground is the Chapel of 
Meditation which has just been completed. At 
left is a portion of the Powell Building, the 
University Center (See page 17). Rising above 
the University Center is the Memorial Bell 
Tower which has been dedicated In honor of 
all Eastern students who have lost their lives 
in the service of their country. And, many 
alumni will recognize the old Student Union 
Building which is presently undergoing com- 
plete renovation.

What Alumni Can Contribute

-tV round the first of July each 
year, you get a long, business en- 
velope with a maroon and white seal 
on its left margin, a seal with two 
men shaking hands in front of a 
spoked wheel. Deftly printed above 
the seal are the familiar words, "Al- 
umni Association, Eastern Kentuckv 
University." 

The sign is a familiar one because 
you get letters bearing this same 
seal at Homecoming, Alumni Day, 
and at \arious other times during the 
year. 

But tliis one is different; it's sum- 
mertime and you know that this one 
is a contribution letter. "They're ask- 
ing for money again," you tliink to 
yourself. And you're probabl\' right. 

Each year alumni are asked for 
monetai-y contributions to help carry 
on the work of the Alumni Associa- 
tion—record-keeping, alumni scholar- 
ships, etc. And that facet of your 
support is no doubt essential if the 
Alumni Association is to survi\e. 

But tliere are other ways in which 
alumni are asked to help tlieir Alma 
Mater, ways tliat are much less ex- 
pensive. Some cost little more than 
a bit of time and attention. Their 
objective is simph- to let others 
know what Eastern is all about so 
that they, too, will recognize her 
with admii-ation and respect and 



perhaps will want Eastern to become 
a part of their future, too. 

Li lact, the puipose of this issue 
of the EKU alumni magazine is, quite 
sinipl), to enlist )ou along with our 
12,000 students and 1,500 faculty, 
staff, and other luiiversity employees, 
as part of a 35,000-member task 
force, or, if you w ill, recruiting staff. 
We want you to know that you can 
support Eastern . . . without opening 
your pocketbcok. 

In this issue the editors hope to 
give you information that will help 
you answer many questions that 
prospecti\e students and other po- 
tential supporters might have. In so 
doing, the editors hope, Eastern's 
alumni will be better infomied 
about the University and her pro- 
grams. It's a novel approach for an 
alumni publication. At this point in 
time, ho\ve\er, it is perhaps tlie on]\- 
way short of an on-campus orienta- 
tion course in which alumni can be 
familiarized with tlie modern East- 
em Kentucky University. 

One of the easiest ways you can 
support Eastern is to set a good ex- 
ample in your work. An Eastern- 
trained teacher who keeps up with 
the latest developments in his field; 
tlie engineer who \oluntarily spends 
some of his free time on a design 
which his company eventually ac- 



cepts; the performer who puts his 
heart into a secondary role ... all 
who take e.xtra pride in what they 
do are telling tlie Eastern story, 
subtly, yet effectively. 

Those of you who are teachers per- 
haps have more direct opportimities to 
spread the Eastern word to potential 
students. You \ery often kM0\\- wliat 
your students are interested in doing, 
and if you arc familiar with campus 
programs, )'0U can advise your stu- 
dents on sound ground. 

At other times. Eastern provides 
programs for school groups which 
slioukl be at the top of )'our list if 
}-ou teach in certain areas. Science 
and math competition rcgularl)' con- 
ducted on campus ferret tlie talented 
high schoolers for possible future 
study at Eastern; drama and speech 
fcsti\als give the youngsters an op- 
portunity to compete with their peers 
and get professional suggestions about 
tlieir performances. Campus concerts, 
\arious educational films, and sport- 
ing events are almost alwa\s open to 
the secondary school students and 
faculty who want to come. And, often 
the students in\-olved will come if 
their teachers remind them that it's 
something they probably would en- 
joy, or if these teachers would bring 
them on a field trip. " 

During these high school activities 
on campus, you often have the op- 



THE EASTERN KENTUCKY ALUMNUS 



portunity to introduce your students 
to the university faculty and show 
tnem the physical campus itseli. A 
triendly chat with a tuture professor 
and a walk tlirougli tlie oia ravine 
at any season have convinced many 
students that Eastern is ttieir choice. 
Its a ser\'ice you can render wlncli 
means as much to Eastern as a mone- 
tary contribution. 

But, before ;you"can generate much 
enthusiasm for -^ur Aima Mater, you 
need to know mofe about Eastern and 
how much it has changed since you 
left. %- 

You may want to collect. diterature 
from the various colleges withhi tne 
university. Almost evg*^' department 
has pampldets on tlie' various majors 
and minors in all~ areas. And, its 
always handy to Have tlie basic finan- 
cial tacts for the prospective student 
who always wants to know how much 
Eastern costs. (We are mcluding an 
informational magazine, entitled An 
Invitation to Live and Learn at EKU. 
in this issue to help you begin )our 
ovmn re-orientation) 

After you have collected your ma- 
terial, you can evaluate the programs 
with some knowledge so that your 
appraisal of each program will be an 
honest and accurate one. If youre 
aware that Eastern's traffic safety 
program is the only one of its kind 
in Kentucky, your problem is solved 
if you find a student who wants to 
go into traffic safety at a Kentucky 
school. 

And because programs are con- 
stantly changing, this knowledge 
would have to be updated periodic- 
ally when you ha\'e a specific request 
from a prospective student. You may 
advise a friend that he can only get 
an associate degree in nursing at 
Eastern if you did not know that a 
new four-year program is now under- 
way. Or, inadvertently, you may tell 
an aspiring secretary to enter the 
one-year secretarial course which was 
discontinued only last year to give 
more emphasis to the two-year pro- 
gram. 

To be honest with \our advisees, 
vou would have to have some current 
knowledge of Eastern and what it has 
to offer, or some idea of how to find 
the information vou need quickly and 
efficiently. 




Prime example of what Alumni can do with their checkbooks is the Chapel of 
Meditation which is nearing completion and approacliing- an early spring dedi- 
cation. The non-denominational Chapel is being financed entirely by non-public 
funds generated by the Alumni Century Fund. 



If you teach, you may check your 
school bulletin boards, with your 
principals, or guidance counselors to 
make sure that pertinent information 
from Eastern is posted or brought to 
the attention of the particular faculty 
and staff that would benefit from it. 
Announcements of extension classes, 
night classes, or correspondence 
course offerings may often bypass 
teachers if someone doesn't make 
sure they are circulated, in some way, 
to the appropriate persons.

Being familiar with the programs 
also helps the businessman graduate 
whose business acquaintance has a 
son or daughter "looking around" for 
a college. If you're not in education 
and feel more unsure about giving 
academic answers, you might suggest 
a trip to the campus for a tour and 
a talk with faculty and staff who 
could help answer questions. Many 
times students come to Eastern after 
seeing the physical campus itself; aca- 
demic considerations often take sec- 
ond place in their evaluation of 
eligible institutions. 

Another way you, tlie graduate, can 
keep up with the college scene is by 
taking courses either on or off cam- 
pus. For example, this semester East- 
ern offered three evening continuing 
education courses for both regular 
students and part-time students in 
painting, stock and bond investments, 
and simple electricity and repairing 
small apphances. These weekly ses- 
sions help tlie attending graduates in 
two ways: not only will you gain 
\'aluable knowledge that will help 
you develop a hobby, make or save 
money, but )ou will also keep abreast 
of what college is aU about, the feel- 
ing that comes from being a part of 



WINTER, 1972 




some kind of classroom situation. In 
short, it's a good way to keep in 
touch with Eastern Kentucky Univer- 
sity. 

Anotlier way alumni can help East- 
ern is by "advertising" it. Tliis kind 
of support takes on many forms. It 
may simply be manifested by dis- 
pla)'ing an Eastern (or alumni) decal 
across the back window of the family 
car. It may also show when you dis- 
play your Eastern Kentucky Univer- 
sity chair in your den. And, tliose old 
EKU sweatshirts may fade, but diey 
almost never wear out. 

This kind of interest can also take 
on more serious and time-consuming 
ramifications. You may want to sup- 
port or start an alumni chapter in 
your particular area and tlien help to 
keep the club active and useful by 
suggesting projects which will give it 
pui-pose and direction. Recently, an 
alumnus from Dayton, Ohio, wrote 
that he was interested in making the 
chapter in that area more active. 
Anotlier club is presently trying to 
start a scholarship fund for a deserv- 
ing student in their area. Eastern has 
seventeen chapters in four states and 
tlie District of Columbia. Many of 
these need new ideas and renewed in- 
terest so that they can become more 
vital links with EKU. In short, many 
of them need you. 

One of the best of all ways to sup- 
port Eastern is by attending tlie vari- 
ous campus functions, especially those 
tliat are designed with you in mind. 
The highlight of all fall activities is 
Homecoming, that nostalgic weekend 
when old friends get together again. 
A regular return to this event will

during their 60-year reunion. Alumni Day reunions are held annually during 
Commencement Weekend activities. 



remind you of the close ties that you 
have with your campus, and hope- 
fully rekindle your enthusiasm for 
Eastern, wliich will, no doubt, be con- 
tagious when you go out to tell some- 
one else about your alma mater. 

In the spring, Alumni Day, held 
annually in conjunction with com- 
mencement activities, always wel- 
comes all alumni altliough it focuses 
on special reunion classes. Five 
classes -I5-, 25-, 40-, 50-, 60-year - 
share memories annually. 

But the participation can extend 
beyond these two events if you live 
close enough to the campus to take 
part. 

Colonel or, if vou prefer. Maroons, 
basketball and football game-s may 
appeal to the sportsminded while 
Little Theatre productions might be 
a dramatic night out for the histrion- 



ically inclined. Various concerts and 
lectures are always open to the public 
as well as the student body. Doc Sev- 
erinsen. The Carpenters, Ahin Tof- 
fler, Julian Bond, and Ralph Nader 
are examples of personalities that 
come to the campus each year. 

Then, there is aways the imagina- 
tive promotion that you can do on 
vour owii. Maybe if v'ou know six 
or eight potential students, you'd hke 
to plan a "fresliman dinner" for them. 
It may be a barbecue, a sit-down 
dinner, or any social affair which 
links alumni with future undergradu- 
ates and shows these students that 
EKU people are interested in one 
another. 

You may ask the rmiversity for 
some assistance in planning your pro- 
gram if vou feel a formal presenta- 
tion is in order, or you may choose 



THE EASTERN KENTUCKY ALUMNUS 



just simply to talk about the days 
when you froHcked around the cam- 
pus. But, whichever you choose, it's 
an excellent way for alumni to talk 
about Eastern to future students 
under the best possible drcumstances. 

Another show of confidence might 
be an occasional telegram or tele- 
phone call to the coach of one of 
the teams playing an important con- 
test. A simple "we're behind you" 
message does wonders for the spirit 
of the team. 

Individually, these activities may 
seem to make very little difference at 
Eastern Kentucky University, but col- 
lectively, in terms of thousands of 
alumni, the results could be stagger- 
ing. Alumni ambassadors have always 
been reliable liaisons; such concen- 
trated effort could only compound 
their usual effectiveness. 



In addition to these activities, there 
is always the element of constructive 
criticism that you can offer Eastern. 
Often we think of criticism in nega- 
tive terms, but there is little doubt 
that any person or institution can 
profit from comments from those 
who know the situation best, those 
who have gone through the experi- 
ence of college at Eastern. Anything 
)'ou remember from yom- undergradu- 
ate da)'s, or that you encounter when 
you return to the campus that might 
help some universitv official see a 
need that would otherwise go un- 
noticed would be welcomed by tlie 
Universit)'. Such suggestions not only 
help Eastern, but they show a genu- 
ine interest from people whose in- 
terest, enthusiasm, and constructive 
criticism are essential if Eastern is to 
accomplish its purpose. 





Graduation day not only marks the end of many fond memories. It signals the 
beginning of another kind of relationship in which the graduate beg^ins to serve 
his Alma Mater in a different way in the world-at-large. Hopefully, however, his 
message to those around him will always reflect his experiences on campus.

Along the same lines, alumni may 
write to their representative or con- 
gressmen in support of legislation 
fa\'orable to higher education. Elected 
officials are very responsive to the 
opinions of their constituents. So, if 
\-ou as constituents are dedicated to 
the needs of higher education, quite 
likely you can make your elected of- 
ficials see and react to the serious 
problems that face higher education 
today. 

Of course the list of what vou can 
do for Eastern could extend into the 
financial realm. Many EKU alumni 
ha\'e joined the Centurv Club and the 
result of their efforts, the non-de- 
nominational Chapel of Meditation, 
is due for dedication this spring. And,

About Eastern Kentucky University 

(With Accompanying Answers) 



W'-HERE WE AT EASTERN are 
now oiilv becomes significant 
when we consider it in relation to 
wliere we have been. Since 1906 
when Eastern Kentucky State Normal 
School was born as a two-vear insti- 
tution, Eastern has bloomed into a 
sprawling multi-purpose rmiversity. 

From every phase of university life, 
the growth has been spectacular. In 
1907 five coeds were mailed two-year 
diplomas from Eastern Kentucky 
State Noriiial S'chool; in 1956 a grad- 
uating class of 53.3 students received 
bachelor's or" master's degrees from 
Eastern Kentucky State College; this 
year 1,968 degrees were granted from 
Eastern Kentucky Uni\ersitv. 

The 1909 Diploma Class met and 
formed the Eastern Kentucky State 
Normal School Alumni Association 
with a possible membership of 26. 
Today, nearly 22,000 members make 
up the Eastern Kentucky University 
Alumni Association. 



More dramatic changes have taken 
place within the last decade during 
the administi-ation of Dr. Robert R. 
Martin. Many of these changes are 
directly related to the granting of 
uni\'ersity status in 1966. 

The on-campus student enrollment 
has grown from 2,944 in 1959 to 
10.171 this past fall. More than .30 
major construction projects ha\c 
pushed the value of Eastern's physical 
plant from §7 million in 1960 to near- 
h' $100 million toda\'. In addition to 
this new construction, \irtuallv ever\' 
facility that existed on tlic campus in 
1960 has undergone complete reno- 
vation. 

In 1960 Eastern's 126 faculty mem- 
bers had onl\ 30 earned doctorates 
(23.8 percent) in their group. Today, 
of the 471 faculty. 201 hold that de- 
gree (46.9 percent). 

This mushrooming has continued in 
the academic programs offered bv the 
University. In 1960 Eastern offered 



26 degree programs, 20 baccalaureate 
majors and si.x master's curricula. 
This fall students chose from among 
157 degree programs— SO baccalaure- 
ate, 53 graduate and 24 two-year or 
associate degree curricula. The grad- 
uate programs include master's, spe- 
cialist, and doctoral degrees, the lat- 
ter a joint degree jirogram in coop- 
eration with the l^nixcrsitv of Ken- 
tucky. In addition. Eastern offers a 
complete complement of adxanccd 
educational certification programs. 

So, Eastern Kentucky University 
today may be a far cry from what you 
experienced during \our divs here. 
e\en a few years ago. The changes 
have made Eastern a better univer- 
sity, one that has kept pace with the 
changing times so that it -could con- 
tinue to offer its students the educa- 
tion they need to become produftive 
citizens. 

To help you answer some frequent- 
h- asked question aboat Eastern to- 
day, we have asked some of the Uni-

versity officials to respond to key 
questions most often asked by liigh 
school students who are considering 
colleges. More detailed questions 
may be addressed to the appropriate 
program chairmen listed in the Live 
and Learn booklet included with this 
issue. 

More detailed infomiation concern- 
ing most of the following questions 
is contained in the Live and Learn 
booklet. ^Vhere applicable, the ap- 
]5ropriate page numbers are cited fol- 
lo\\'ing the answer to the question. 

(1) As a regional university, are 
Eastern's responsibilities and 
aims different from other types 
of institutions? 

Eastern's role has expanded be- 
yond the original mission of 
teacher preparation so that it 
now seeks to fulfill the three- 
fold purpose of teaching, public 
servdce and research; and places 
emphasis on the three in tliat 
order. Teacher education has re- 
mained a top priority-. It. along 
with most other programs, is 
construed as public service. Gen- 
erally, research at the Uni\ersit)' 



(3) 



has developed along education- 
ally oriented Hnes. (See Live 
and Learn, pages 5-7.) 

Have program priorities changed 
since Eastern became a univer- 
sitv in 1966? 

Prior to the coming of university 
status in 1966, Eastern offered 
a modest variety of programs 
consistent with its role as a state 
college. Becoming a universit^' 
has brought about a significant 
program diversification at all 
levels. Associate degree pro- 
grams have increased several- 
fold to the current listing of 
about twenty-fi%'e. At the bac- 
calaureate level there has been 
a doubling to the present offer- 
ings of almost seventy possible 
specializations. Graduate offer- 
ings have expanded well bevond 
the master's degree programs for 
teachers to forfr\'-five programs 
in a wide varietv of fields and 
to seven specialist degree pro- 
grams. (See Live and Learn 
pages 5-7.) 

Are there cooperative programs 
between Eastern and other Ken- 
tuck"\' schools?

Eastern cooperates witlr a num- 
ber of Kentucky colleges and 
universities in a miique under- 
graduate state government in- 
ternship program centered in 
Frankfort. The university also 
participates in a joint doctoral 
degree program in education 
with the University of Kentucky. 
For full details regarding tliese 
and other cooperative programs, 
the inquiring student should 
write the Office of Academic 
Affairs. (See Live and Learn, 
page 17.) 

(4) Will Eastern transfer all credits 
from other schools?

(5) 



Easterns policy on tlie accept- 
ance of credit transferred is con- 
sistent generally with the poli- 
cies of other uistitiitions in the 
state. There is a limit of 67 
credit hours from a communit\ 
or junior college. .Ml credits ac- 
cepted must a\erage at least 
"C". The applicability of trans- 
ferred credit to degree require- 
ments is determined by the col- 
lege dean with every effort 
being made to avoid repetition 
and loss of credit. OrdinariK. 
courses may be used as eleeti\ e 
credit toward tlie minimum 
credit hour requirement for a 
degree. Detailed information re- 
garding residence requirements 
for the different degree levels 
and special limitations peculiar 
to the graduate program is pro- 
vided the inquiring student. (See 
Live and Learn, pages 8-9.) 

It's been nmiored that manv col- 
leges change their requirements 
after a student has alreadv en- 
rolled and completed some 
courses. Does Eastern do this? 
Changes in academic reqm're- 
ments are not retroacti\e. East- 
em's ba.sic policv is that a stu- 
dent is held to the desiree re- 
qm'rements specified in the cat- 
alog at the time of entering the 
University, unless enrollment is 
interrupted for a \ear or more.

(6) What is the average faculty- 
student ratio at Eastern? 

The overall faculty-student ratio 
is about 1 to 19. Eastern has 
very few large classes, the aver- 
age size being in the 30's. 

(7) What about pre-professional pro- 
grams like law or medicine that 
rd have to transfer from East- 
em? Do I lose credits? 

Eastern's pre-professional pro- 
grams are carefidlv designed to 
meet the requirements of pro- 
fessional schools. Graduate work 
in law and in medicine requires 
the completion of a bachelor's 
degree. In forestry, veterinary 
medicine, and engineering there 
are specially designed two or 
three year programs which dove- 
tail wth the advanced work to

(8) If I am a veteran, do I get credit 
for mv militarv' service when I 
enroll at Eastern? 

A veteran who has not had his 
Military Science, as ROTC, on 
a college campus is eligible for 
credit in Militarj' Science as fol- 
lows: (a) Military Service of one 
year equals S semester hours of 
Militar\' Science credit, (b) Serv- 
ice of foiu" to six months equals 
4 semester hours of Militarv 
Science. 

(9) Does Eastern have an ROTC 
program? Is it mandatory or 
optional? 



10 



THE EASTERN KENTUCKY ALUMNUS 



Eastern has had a Reserve Of- 
ficers' Training Corps since 1936. 
While it was mandatory for a 
number of years, it has been a 
voluntary-optional program since 
1971 and continues to be one of 
the nation's largest programs. 
All able-bodied Freshman and 
Sophomore male students have 
the choice of enrolling in ROTC 
or taking certain non-rtulitary 
eleotives in lieu of ROTC. 
ROTC students who qualify for 
the third and fourth years of the 
program will be commissioned 
officers in the U.S. Armv upon 
successful completion of the re- 
quirements. A number of schol- 
arships are available to qualified 
ROTC students. 

(10) If a student has problems adjust- 
ing to university life, does East- 
em offer any assistance? 

Eastern tries to offer personal 
attention to each student. We 
strive to have personal contact 
with our students in an effort to 
help each student achieve a de- 
gree of success. Our program to 
help students adjust to uni\'ersit\' 
life begins with a summer ori- 
entation program. In this sum- 
mer program we work N\'ith the 
student to develop a schedule 
of classes to meet his academic 
abilities and desires. We then 
spend eight hours in four differ- 
ent areas of student affairs. In 
this period we explain oppor- 
timities for participation in stu- 
dent organizations and acti\aties; 
services available— financial aid. 
student health services, counsel- 
ing services; adjustment to resi- 
dent hall life; adiustment to 
campus life— utilization of cnun- 
.seling services. 

V^Tien a student arri\'es on cam- 
pus, he has been assigned an 
academic counselor to heln him 
\vith the academic adjustment. 

He is then enrolled in Orienta- 
tion 100 for a series of orienta- 
tion classes conducted during 
the fall semester. He is housed 
in a residence hall which will 
have counseling services avail- 
able through a director ^vith 
training and experience in coun- 



seling and guidance and the 
services of graduate assistants 
enrolled in counseling and guid- 
ance graduate work. Within the 
concept of helping students to 
adjust, the University has devel- 
oped a very comprehensive 
Counseling Center. This center 
is organized as a separate ad- 
ministrative unit in the area of 
student affairs and provides 
personal-social counseling seT\'- 
ices, as well as vocational coun- 
seling. The center is open 12 
hours a day with "hot-line" 
telephone service available 18 
hours a day. (See Live and 
Learn, pages 26-29.) 

(11) What about sororities and fra- 
ternities? Are they national at 
Eastern? Do I have to join to 
have a social life? 

At Eastern there are seven sor- 
orities and t^velve fraternities. 
All seven sororities are national 
and ten of the twelve fraterni- 
ties are national. Approximately 
10 per cent of our student body 
is Greek and the Greeks do play 
a significant role in the social 
life of the campus. There are 
132 recognized organizations on 
our campus. These oreanizations 
are divided into Greek, academ- 
ic, service, and social classifica- 
tions. Thev are develoned bv 
persons with like interests. Thev 
are designed to round out a per- 
son's educational experience 
while at Ea.stem. The Univer- 
sity Center Board, made up of 
students and staff, pro\'ides big 
name entertainment, a fine arts 
series, and a headline lecture 
series throutrhout the year. fSee 
Live and Learn, pages 32-37.) 

(12) What happens if I "flunk out"? 
Do I get a second chance? 

If a student's grade point aver- 
age falls below the following 
levels, he will be denied re-en- 
rollment for at least one semes- 
ter: \\'ith 24-35 hours attempted 
he must earn a 1.4 GPA. with 
36-63 hours attemnted he must 
earn a 1.6 GPA. \\nth 64-95 
hours attempted he must earn a 
1.8 GPA. A student who has 
been out of college for at least

one semester after faUing below 
these levels most certainly will 
have a second chance. He ex- 
ercises the opportunity for this 
second chance by appealing to 
the Admissions Committee which 
is chaired by the Vice President 
for Academic Affairs. The Dean 
of Admissions acts as secretary 
to the Admissions Committee. 
If in the judgment of this com- 
mittee a former student, based 
on all the evidence available to 
the committee, including his ap- 
peal in writing with extenuating 
circumstances attached, is cap- 
able or appears to be capable of 
academic achievement, he is re- 
admitted. Although the regula- 
tion states he has the privilege 
of re-enrollment after one sem- 
ester, the committee reserves the 
right to judge when the return 
of the student to the institution 
is most expedient with reference 
to his ongoing academic success. 
Sometimes this is set at one year 
or he is timed to enter during a 
summer session. (See Live and 
Learn, pages 12, 28-29.) 

(13) Fve heard that Eastern has 
an "open dooi^ admissions pol- 
icy. What does this mean exact- 
ly? 

An "open door" admissions pol- 
icy simply indicates that the in- 
stitution will admit a aualified 
person upon the comoletion and 
submission of all his material 
pertinent to his request for en- 
rollment at Eastern. Eastern 
does not delay or withhold ad- 
mission until a set time such as 
March or April, but grants ad- 
mission as soon as a person in- 
dicates that he is qualified. (See 
Live and Learn, pages 8-9.)

grams are available at Eastern? 

-Kpinoximately 50 perernt of tlic 
EKU enrollment is attending 
Eastern with some form of fi- 
nancial assistance. I'rogianis 
axailable at EKU include loans, 
lirants, work study, seholarshi]is

scription of these programs, and 
their ref|iu'rcmeiits. appears on 
pages .30 and .31 of Lice and 
Learn. 

(Hi) What about t\\<)-\ear |)ro^rams? 
What do they offer I lie aspiring 
student? 

Many students interested in a 
vocational or occupational area 
are now choosing tvvo-vcar, asso- 
ciate degree programs for sev- 
eral reasons. Thev can be com- 
pleted in a minimum amount of 
time at a minimum amount of 
cost to the student. Programs are 
specialized in nature and pre- 
pare one to enter immediately 
into a good position. Generally, 
the job opportiniitics are good 
for associate degree graduates. 
They are high quality programs 
which draw on the full resources 
of the University. They are 
open-ended programs so that a 
student may apply the credits 
earned toward a four-year de- 
gree in the same area. In most 
instances where Eastern offers 
two-year programs, four-vear 
programs arc also axailable. (See 
Live and Learn, pages 13-15.) 

(17) What is Eastern's policy on class 
attendance? 

liegular class attendance is ex- 
pected of all students. Each in- 
structor is responsible for record- 
ing absences and for dealing 
with them in a manner consistent 
with departmental policy for 
that course. Since attendance 
policies vary among departments 
and for courses within depart- 
ments, it is essential to be fa- 
miliar with the policy announced 
b\' each instiuctor. 
A student who presents the in- 
structor with an adequate and 
documented reason for absence 

THE EASTERN KENTUCKY ALUMNUS 



will normally be given an op- 
portunity to make up missed 
work, if feasible. The responsi- 
bility for initiating the request 
to make up class work missed is 
\ested \\'ith the student. 

(18) Can freshmen have automobiles 
on campus? 

Students registered as sopho- 
mores, juniors, seniors, and grad- 
uate students who have an over- 
all standing of 2.0 or above (C 
average) may be granted the 
privileges of registering and op- 
erating an automobile at East- 
em. Students registered as fresh- 
men, regardless of the number 
of terms they have attended col- 
lege, or students on social pro- 
bation, regardless of their classi- 
fication, are forbidden to possess 
and/or operate motor vehicles at 
the University. 

Exceptions to motor vehicle 
registration regulations may be 
granted only with special per- 
mission of the Director of Safet\' 
and Security, in order to avoid 
hardship based on physical 
handicap, necessary commuting 
to classes, use of car for essential 
work, and other proven needs. 



(19) What kind of facilities does East- 
cm have for students interested 
in varsity and intramural ath- 
letics? 

Eastern offers a wide variety of 
facilities to all students who 
want to participate in intercol- 
legiate and intramural programs. 
Men's varsity sports include 
football, basketball, baseball, 
swimming, track and field, ten- 
nis, wrestling, gymnastics, and 
rifle marksmanship. Women stu- 
dents may participate in inter- 
collegiate programs for basket- 
ball, field hockey, volleyball, 
tennis, track and field, and gym- 
nastics. 

Eastern operates its indoor pro- 
grams in three major buildings. 
Indoor facilities for men are lo- 
cated in Alumni Coliseum and 
the Begley academic - atliletic 
comple.x. Alumni Coliseum 
houses a basketball arena, men 
and women's locker rooms, two 
swimming pools, fitness room, 
training room, steam room, 
wrestling room, and an auxiliary 
gym with four volleyball, six 
, badminton, and four basketball 
courts. The Begley Building in- 
cludes three gymnasiums for

basketball, volleyball, badmin-

varsity locker rooms. 
The Women's indoor sports and 
recreational programs are housed 
in the Weaver Health Building, 
which includes a dance studio, 
a large gymnasium with two bas- 
ketball, four volleyball, and six 
badminton courts, two handball 
courts, a swimming pool, and 
locker rooms. 

Outdoor facilities include the 
usual football and baseball fields, 
a nine lane grasstex surfaced 
track, and a 24-acre multi-pm-- 
pose outdoor area which i:)ermits 
multi-use as eight flag football 
fields, six softball fields, two 
soccer fields, and two \ars'tv 
i:)ractice football fields. The 
women's sports area, Gertrude 
Hood Field, includes space for 
two field hockey and two soft- 
ball fields. 

Twenty-four lighted, liard sur- 
face tennis courts provide snorts 
and intramural areas for all stu- 
dents. Arlington Golf Course is 
used by Eastern's varsitv and 
intramural teams. Included in 
all these facilities is a 12-lane 
bowling allev located in the new 
ITniversitv Center. (See Live and 
Learn, pages 38-39.) 

The Alumnus has attempted to 
briefly, and, we hope, adequately dis- 
cuss the programs, facilities, and gen- 
eral philosophy of the University 
campus. In doing so, we have no 
doubt dunlicated and perhaps omitted 
points of interest to particular indi- 
\iduals. For example, we have not 
dwelt upon living facilities since the 
Live and Learn magazine enclosed 
covers these in some detail. Rather, 
I't was our intent to focus on the most 
frequently asked questions and suc- 
cinctly answer them with the help of 
references to Live and Learn.

WHAT 

HAS 

EASTERN 

DONE 

FOR ME? 



TN THE MIDST of reading these 
•*• pages on how alumni can be of as- 
sistance to Eastern Kentucky Univer- 
sity, graduates are apt to reflect on 
what the institution has done for them. 
Others, who have not gi\'en the mat- 
ter much thought before might ask, 
"What has Eastern done for me?" 

In a sense, it's a hard question to 
answer. It can be likened to the 
story of three men who \\'ere blind- 
folded and asked to examine and 
describe an elepliant. One man felt 
only the trunk and said the elephant 
was like a snake. Another felt the tail 
and declared it like a rope. The third 
felt the elephant's side and likened 
it to a wall. 

The point is, that the scope of East- 
em's service to its alumni has been 
so significant and so comprehensive 
that it is difficult to use anv one ex- 
ample of that sendee in gi^^ng a 
meaningful description. 

The special relationship betweeii 
Uni\ersity and Graduate led to the 
use of "Alma Mater," tihe Latin for 
"Other Mother," as the standard ap- 
pellation for one's college or univer- 
sity. 

One approach to examining what 
Eastern has done for its graduates 
might be to look at what is being 
done for students currently enrolled. 



14 



Perhaps the most significant fact in- 
dicative of service to students is that 
more tlian 50 per cent of the enroll- 
ment is receiving some type of stu- 
dent financial aid — in the form of 
loans, grants, student employment, 
\'eteran's benefits, etc. 

Despite Eastern's unprecedented 
growth and development during the 
past dozen vears, the University has 
worked to maintain the same level 
of friendliness and concern for the 
student that was a characteristic of 
the smaller Eastern. Social counsel- 
ing and concentrated academic ad- 
vising are aimed at helping the stu- 
dent to function as a member of the 
Universitv' Communitv and to fulfill 
his academic goals. Several programs, 
including Richmond Communits' Col- 
lege and Central Universitv- College's 
Learning Lab, are designed at pro- 
viding second chances for students 
who have exnerienced difficulty ad- 
iusting to college life. 

Sociallv, the current year has been 
one of great advances for the Eastern 
student. TTie completion of the 
Powell Building, the University Cen- 
ter, is a milestone in Eastern history. 
The facilities provided hv the struc- 
ture — 1,000-seat cafeteria, grill, con- 
ference and meetincr rooms, lounges, 
bowling allev. and billiard and game 
rooms — combine with the existing

EKU graduates can avail themselves of the job interview opportunities made 
available through the facilities of the Placement Office. 



recreational opportunities of the cam- 
pus — swimming pools, tennis courts, 
intramural fields, etc. — to provide 
ample leisure time facilities. 

Dormitories are receiving: more at- 
tention in terms of student services 
and activities. Full-time dorm direc- 
tors plan recreational and educational 
programs for each residence hall in 
an attempt to enrich the student's 
total educational experience. 

The University Center Board has 
attracted a host of top entertainers 
and artists to the campus, including 
Chicago, the Carpenters, Doc Se\er- 
inson, the Don Cossack Dancers and 
John Chappell in "Mark Twain To- 
night." Lectures have included Ahin 
Toffler and Julian Bond. All of this 
came during the 1971 fall semester. 

Academically, tlie Eastern student 
has the choice of more than 150 de- 
gree programs supported bv the most 
highlv trained facult\' in the institu- 
tion's historv. 

And, as tliis issue of the Alumnus 
went to press, work on the Chapel of 
Meditation was nearing completion. 
Provided bv the Alumni Association 
through the Alumni Century Fund, 
the Chapel is set for an earlv spring 
dedication and wiU serve the spiritual 
and meditative needs of the Univer- 
sity Commmiitv', and of tlie alumni. 

These services, opportimities and 
advancements that the current stu- 
dent body enjovs are an obvious bene-

Advances 



tit to the Universitvs alumni. As 
Eastern grows in stature and ser\ice, 
the value of the degrees held by 
EKU graduates is enhanced. And, 
as is pointed out elsewhere in tiiis 
issue, all the more reason exists for 
throwing out ones chest and pro- 
claiming: "I'm an Eastern graduate!" 

The question of Eastern's service 
to its graduates is not entirely one 
of the past tense. Eastern continues 
to provide benefits after conmience- 
ment. 

One of the first services of which 
graduates become aware is tlie Place- 
ment Office. EKU's placement opera- 
tion attempts to put graduates in con- 
tact with prospective employers. This 



service does not apply only to recent 
graduates. Alumni can ask the Place- 
ment Oiiice to activate their files at 
any time to assist in job hunting. 

Most of tlie continuing services 
for graduates are provided by the Of- 
tiee of Alumni Affairs. Pubhcations, 
such as tlie Alumnus and Alumni 
Newsletter, keep Alumni Association 
members informed about develop- 
ments at tlie institution and the ac- 
tivities of their classmates. 

The Alumni Office, through the 
maintenance of extensive records on 
career, location and family, frequent- 
ly serves to restore contact between 
friends. 

The .\Iumni Association is constant- 
ly expanding its aid to EKU gradu- 
ates. A summer excursion to Hawaii 
at low-cost, group rates is being or- 
ganized, and otlier programs are in 
the planning stages. 

Most familiar of Uie affairs spon- 
sored by the x\lumni Office are Al- 
umni Day and Homecoming. Re- 
unions of classes and other special 
groups highlight both of these annual 
occasions. 

Part of the regular activities of 
Alumni Day and Homecoming has 
traditionally been the orgaiuzation of 
reunions for anniversary classes (15-, 
25-, 40-, 50-, and 60-years) and for 
special interest groups. Reimions, 
however, are not restricted to those 
special days. For example, at last sea- 
son's Tennessee Tech football game, 
the football coaches and former play- 
ers of the past 45 years were honored. 

Somewhat intangible is the role 
that Alumni plav in tlie decision mak- 
ing processes of the University. 
Tlirough the Alumni Association, 
EKU is kept continually aware of the 
opinions and needs of graduates. This, 
in tiun, affeets major decisions that 
primarilv have impact on four groups 
—the current student body, the fac- 
ulty and staff, future students, and 
alumni. 

In tlie final analysis, an examina- 
tion of what is being done for stu- 
dents todav and services available to 
graduates, perhaps do not provide an 
adequate answer to the original ques- 
tion, "^^'hat has Eastern dcoie for 
me?" 



WINTER, 1972

To those wlio must lia\e that issue 
iisohed, tliu answer ma)' well be in 
(lie form ol another question. "W'liere 
would I be, ami what would I be 
doing without the opportunities made 
available by Eastern?" 

Added a few years ago to the 
ai/enda of iiraduation exercises were 
two items w hich are intended to focus 
upon the true meaning of the degree 
and the responsibilities of its holder. 
Although nearl) one-half of tlie 22,000 
members of tlie Alumni Assjciatioa 
were graduated at programs which 
included these items, it is doubtful 
that, in the anxiety of the occasion, 
many recall the meaning of them. 
The words contained in the Charge 
to tlie Graduating Class and the 
Pledge of the Graduate should be 
shared witlr all Eastern people. These 
perhaps, explain best of all the re- 
lationship between Eastern and its 
graduates.

PLEDGE 

As a member of the graduating class and in the presence of these 
witnesses, I acknowledge the debt I owe to Alma Mater for the oppor- 
tunity that I have had to nurture mind and spirit in an environment 
of culture and beauty. I promise to hold my degree so no loss will come 
to it through my holding. 

I pledge to seek earnestly and faithfully to perpetuate this oppor- 
tunity for other generations of young people that our country may never 
lack for leaders of character and ability for a government based on the 
dignity of man and the worth and freedom of the individual. 

With whatever wisdom I possess and with reverence for the truth 
as I see it, I pledge the best of my life and loyalty to Alma Mater, to the 
Commonwealth of which I am a citizen, and to the Nation that I love. 
I affirm my determination to justify through my own life and deeds my 
inheritance from the past and do all I can to advance the ultimate goals 
of a free society. 



CHARGE TO THE GRADUATING CLASS 



With the granting of this diploma you take on a new relationship to • 

the University, to the Commonwealth, and to Life. You are now a son | 

or a daughter of Eastern. The Commonwealth looks upon you as a trained j 

and effective citizen. Through your leadership and guidance, you will j 

give to the State a rich return for its investment in you. | 

We proudly send you forth from this campus to join the thousands j 

of young men and women who have preceded you. Our association here • 

has given us confidence that the pride which we feel in you today will | 

be confirmed and strengthened through the years by the quality of your ! 

life and your deeds. I 

Eastern has succeeded if you have learned here the ability to think 
straight; if you now have, based upon the knowledge which you have 
acquired of the past, a vision of the future. Moreover, we are content if 
you have developed skills wliich will be used to the service of mankind. 
May you have a full life based upon a personal integrity and the respect 
of your fellow man. May you ever maintain a spiritual and intellectual 
interest and approach the problems of life with an open mind. 

We hope that however far your journeys may take you they will 
bring you back to this University to which you will always belong. 
Remember, you are our ambassador \vherever you go. Your associates 
will judge higher education in terms of what this opportunity has done 
for you. For those to whom much is given, much will be required. 
As a university graduate you will find no satisfaction with the common- 
place in character, attitude, and value. By your example you should raise 
the intellectual and moral tone of society. 

The Commonwealth of Kentucky has been a partner in the educational 
program which has brought you to this fine hour. It has contributed 
generously to the cost of your education in order to prepare you for 
liigh service as an individual and as an important member of society. 

The need for the expansion of our educational program will become 
more urgent as our society becomes more complex and its problems 
more numerous and difficult. You now assume a new responsibility for 
determining the answer which the Commonwealth will give to the youth 
who must depend upon public education for their training. I am sure that 
you will see that they have opportunities equal or superior to those which 
you have enjoyed. Your gratitude can best be expressed by your deeds.

THE EASTERN KENTUCKY AtUMNUS 



THE EASTERN CHRONICLE 



A precis of xxeuvs about Sastern and its Alumni 



Enrollment: 

Up, Up, And Away 

Eastern enrolled a record total 12,111 
students for the 1971 fall semester. 

The on-campus total of 10,170 repre- 
sents a 5.91 per cent increase over last 
fall's on-campus figure of 9,602. 

The overall enrollment total includes 
the 741 students at Eastern's Model 
Laboratory School, and an estimated 
1,200 students enrolled in some 60 off- 
campus extension courses being offered 
in 30 Kentucky counties. 

In addition, Eastern will serve about 
2,400 persons through its correspondence 
program. 

A breakdown by classification of the 
students on campus shows 3,439 fresh- 
men, up 144 from' fall of 1970; 1,985 
sophomores, down 14; 1,749 juniors, up 
224; 1,622 seniors, up 14; and 1,375 
graduate students, up 200. There are 
5,278 men and 4,892 women in the on- 
campus figure. 

The 8,479 Kentucky students repre- 
senting 110 of the state's 120 counties 
make up approximately 84 per cent of 
the enrollment. Out-of-state students 
represent 35 of the 50_.. states and 42 
foreign students represent 37 countries. 

The Begley Building: 

Excellent Architecture 

The Robert B. Begley Building, an 
academic-athletic complex at Eastern, 
was selected as one of eight projects 
receiving awards for "Excellence in 
Architecture" at the 1971 Kentucky So- 
ciety of Architects Convention. 

A panel composed of nationally recog- 
nized award winning architects selected 
the eight projects from 31 enhies across 
Kentuck-y. The honored projects ha\e 
been entered in the 1972 Honor Awards 
Program of the American Institute of 
Architects. 

In announcing the selection of the 
Begley Building, KSA president Ray- 
mond B. Hayes, Jr., said, "Architects sel- 
dom design or believe in football stadi- 
ums per se . . . but this is not a stadium 
... it is a classroom building of diverse 
curriculum, carefully organized into log- 
ical spaces within a wedge form that 
allows one wall to become a massive 
seating space (capacity 20,000) for foot- 
ball. It is a unique architectural bonus 
and a tribute to the profession's com- 
petence."

Who's In Who's Who 



Thirty-eight Eastern seniors who have 
displaved "outstanding traits of scholar- 
ship, leadership and ser\ice" have been 
named to "Who's Who Among Students 
in American Universities and Colleges." 

The EKU students were nominated by 
academic department chairmen and the 
Student Association. A special commit- 
tee then selected from the nominees the 
students who would receive the honor, 
subject to approval by the national or- 
ganization. 

Each "\Vho's Who" member is award- 
ed a certificate by the pubhcation and 
his achievements are listed in its Blue 
Book. 

At Eastern, members of "Who's WTio" 
are honored in a special section of the 
Milestone, student yearbook, and ou 
Honors Day in May. 

The EKU students to be listed in 
"Who's Who" are: 

Deborah M. Amatulli (5150 Crispy 
Drive), Dayton, Ohio; Daniel J. Baur, 
Athens, Ohio; Janice O. Burdette, Lan- 
caster; Patricia E. Calico, Berea; Francis 
J. Carrico (3916 Illinois Ave.), Louis- 
ville; Arthur D. Cassill, N!ianiisburg, 

Dial Access: 

Letting Your Fingers 

Dial access, a recent innovation in in- 
dividualized audio instruction, is now in 
operation at Eastern. 

The system, operative since the be- 
ginning of the fall semester, provides 
Eastern students with an opportunity, 
outside of the classroom, for additional 
individual instruction. 

The possibilities of dial access are 
endless, according to George Pfoten- 
hauer, director of the new system. 

"Oral presentations of resi-urce of ref- 
erence material can be taped by an in- 
structor, with the addition of his own 
personal comments and emphasis. The 
material would then be available to the 
students at any time during the day. 
Unit reviews, special lectures, or a va- 
riety of other material can be kept on 
hand for the students." 

The 3vstem consists of a complex tape 
deck and console where 320 monaural 
or 160 stereo tapes can be kept cued 
simultaneously. The console can be used 
to cue special tapes or to make tapes 
for future use. At present, a compre- 
hensive reference library of tapes is being 
assembled. 

For studv purposes, there are 99 listen- 
ing units or carrels where students can 
dial the desired program and listen to 
the presentation through head phones.

Do The Learning 

For larger groups, the s)stem is con- 
nected to two large lectxire halls in the 
Bert Combs building, the Grise and 
Ferrell rooms, where a faculty member 
merely has to dial the proper number 
and the programs are played over the 
speaker svstem in either or both of the 
two lecture halls. For smaller groups, 
the Librar)' auditorium is also connected 
to the system. 

Though extensive for a new system, 
the present dial access service is only 
the first phase in a projected three phase 
program. The second phase of the pro- 
gram would connect the system with the 
campus centrex telephone S)'Stem, mak- 
ing any of the programs available to 
the students by dialing from any tele- 
phone on campus. In addition this 
would make the system accessible by 
telephone to students off campus. 

The final phase of the system would 
be the installation of television monitors 
in the listening units and lecture halls, 
enabling television tapes in addition to 
the audio tapes to be used in the system. 

The svstem and listening units are 
located in the basement of the John 
Grant Crabbe Library on the Eastern 
campus.

THE EASTERN KENTUCKY ALUMNUS 



President Martin: 

Serving Again 

Dr. Robert R. Martin, president of 
Eastern, has been presented the Depart- 
ment of Army's Outstanding Civilian 
Ser\'ice Award for his support of the 
Reserve Officers Training Corps pro- 
gram. 

The award, consisting of a bronze 
medal, rosette, and citation certificate 
was presented to the EKU president by 
Major General R. G. Ciccolella, deputy 
commanding general of the First U. S. 
Army during a program in Hiram Brock 
Auditorium. 

According to the citation. Dr. Martin 
"has rendered enthusiastic support 
and assistance to the Military 
Science Department. This attitude has 
enabled the ROTC program to become 
a meaningful and integral part of the 
educational opportunity offered at this 
insHtudon." 

The citation added that Dr. Martin's 
"achievements have immeasurably con- 
tributed to the advancement of the Uni- 
versity and his State, and they are in 
keeping with the finest tradition of the 
United States Armv." 

In accepting the award Dr. Martin ex- 
pressed his belief that the nation should 




Football Colonels: 
Lacking the Big Play 

Lacking the big plays when thev 
needed them most, the Eastern Colonels 
ended their 1971 football season with a 
6-4-1 record. 

"We just haven't been able to get the 
big plav when we need it most," Eastern 
head coach Rov Kidd said. "This has 
been true all season long and was one of 
the main reasons we ended the season 
6-4-1." 

Western won the OVC cro\vn. 



Jimmy Brooks: 
Universal All-American 

Jimmy Brooks, Eastern's four-time All- 
Ohio Valley Conference tailback, was 
named to the first team college division 
All-American squad by Universal Sports. 

Brooks, a 5-10, 180-pound senior from 
Louisville, holds 10 school records and 
five conference marks. His conference 
records include most touchdowns in a 
single game (4, vs. East Tenn., 1971),

commanded entirely by professional sol- 
diers. He said the ROTC program is 
the best wav to attain this ideal. 

The EKU president expressed appre- 
ciation for the success of the ROTC pro- 
gram to the Board of Regents, several 
of whom were guests at the ceremony. 



Miss Buchanan: 

Conquering the Stage 

Miss Pearl Buchanan, who for 40 years 
was director of theatre at Eastern, re- 
turned to the EKU stage last fall as a 
member in the cast of "She Stoops to 
Conquer." 

The play is a new version of an 18th 
Century farce set in 1775 Kentucky. Miss 
Buchanan played Miss HatHe Fletcher, 
a matriarch of Fort Boonesboro, who is 
able to quell even the strong-minded 
Daniel Boone. The comedy was pre- 
sented in the theatre of the Student 
Union Building which is named in honor 
of Miss Buchanan. 

The play was presented as though by 
a eroup of London actors touring the 
Colonies, complete vyith whitewashed 
and rouged faces, flickering candles and 
the songs and dances appropriate to 18th 
Century comedies.

hall coach at Eastern. Marniie assnmed 
Ills coaehinc; duties Jan. 1. 

The 29-\'ear old Barnessille, Ohio, 
native filled the position left vacant the 
entire 1971 season due to the illness of 
Hill Shannon, who coached the defensive 
line. Shannon was unable to coach last 
season because of a heart condition. 

"We are certainly glad to have Lam' 
join us here at Eastern. He has the ex- 
perience and coaching know-how to help 
us out," EKU head coach Rov Kidd said. 

Marinie is a 1966 graduate of Eastern 
where he was a starting quarterback for 
coach Kidd for four years. He still holds 
the school record for highest completion 
percentage in one season (62.1 per cent, 
1965). 

He received his master's degree in 
education from EKU in 1968. He 
coached the Berea High School Pirates in 
1966 and 1967, compiling an 11-8-1 
record. 

In 1968, Nhirniie took an assistant 
coaching position at Morehead State Uni- 
versitv. He handled the defensive sec- 
ondary for MSU head coach Jake Hal- 
lum his first three seasons and last year 
switched to the defensive line.

Hail to thee our Alma Mater, 

Faithful guide of youth, 
Holding high and amid the darkness 

Duty, light, and truth; 
Still above, the skies attend thee, 

Still thy stately columns stand. 
Still thy sons and daughters love thee 

Sing thy praises o'er the land. 
All the earth's resplendent beauty 

Nature gathered here, 
Rolling lawns and trees and grasses 

On thy hillsides fair; 
Happy days within thy shadow. 

Friends and comrades we have won. 
Fill our hearts with exaltation 

For thy task so nobly done. 
When beloved Alma Mater 

Memory recalls 
Other days of youth and laughter 

In thy gracious halls; 
When thy sons and daughters scattered 

Turn again to thee, 
Still thy lamp is brightly lighting 

Us afar, that we may see.

'A Shrine of Yesterday's Dream 
and Tomorrow's Vision . . / 




In any human endeavor coopera- 
on usually makes for success. The 
idividual, although he may stand 
ut at various times, must of neces- 
ty depend upon someone in the 
ackground who doesn't always get 
redit for his supporting role. 

Fraternities call it brotherhood; 
asketball teams call it teamwork; 
usiness calls it organization; edu- 
ation sometimes refers to its inter- 
isciplinary programs, and even the 
ommunists call it comradeship. 

Accordingly, the lesser animals 
jrvive in flocks, herds, or schools. 

It is simply the principle of co- 
perating or working together to 
:hieve ends that would be other- 
'ise impossible or less effective. 

For Eastern's Alumni Association, 

is this cooperative pride that led 
) the completion of the Chapel of 
teditation. It was a project that 
3me thought would never succeed 
ecause "Eastern graduates don't 
ave that kind of money." But, in 
ie end, more than 1,000 persons 
1 24 states and three foreign coun- 



tries were involved in the "common 
cause" that succeeded, despite the 
doubters. 

The skeptics had underestimated 
the sacrifice and pride of alumni 
and friends which accounted for the 
success of the project. These per- 
sons cared enough about their goal 
to make personal sacrifice, and for 
many, the sacrifice was great. When 
the price went up, so did their will 
to sacrifice. When the initial $200,- 
000 estimate skyrocketed to $375,- 
000, the faithful gave more or en- 
listed others into the camaraderie. 

Today, as the Chapel kneels in 
the center of the beautiful plaza, it 
is this caring, this love of an institu- 
tion that is cemented between its 
bricks and glows from the brilliant 
windows around it. It is that in- 
tangible touch in a building that the 
contractor cannot put there. This 
spirit exists for those who have 
made the effort as they walk inside 
and sense what they have done. 
It's a kind of reward for doing a job 
well, a reward that will be passed 



on to thousands of future students 
who use the quietude of the Chapel 
to search and find meaning to their 
lives in some small way. 

May 13 marked the official suc- 
cess of the biggest undertaking in 
the history of the Alumni Associa- 
tion. In many ways it is one of the 
most important dates in the history 
of the University for it dedicated a 
monument built by private funds 
which strives to meet the varied 
spiritual needs of the University 
community. 

To all who gave their money and 
efforts go our sincere thanks. As 
future students use the Chapel for 
important times in their lives, 
alumni and friends who made it 
possible will always remain as 
beautiful examples of what a co- 
operative effort by interested peo- 
ple can do. 

May 13 was our lucky day, a day 
which shall forever stand as one of 
the truly great days in the history 
of Eastern Kentucky University.

ANNIVERSARIES ARE EVENTS of celebra- 
tion and reflection, but the observance of 
President Robert R. Martin's 12th anniver- 
sary as EKU's sixth chief executive Mon- 
day, )uly i, was one of looking forward as 
well. 

To be sure, there was much reflection 
on the accomplishments of the past dozen 
years as Eastern has followed a course 
toward a "Vision of Greatness" that Dr. 
Martin outlined in his 1960 inaugural ad- 
dress. 

Telegrams of congratulations and well- 
wishes were received from governmental 
and educational leaders — including one 
from President Richard M. Nixon. 

A student of history, Dr. Martin studies 
the past for possible relevant lessons for 
today, but it is his foresight that is so 
extremely acute in recognizing current chal- 
lenges and courses of action. 

Following a brief anniversary program, 
which included the unveiling of a plaque 
presented Dr. Martin by the Alumni in 
May, President Martin spoke directly to the 
point concerning education's current issues. 

He pointed to affluence and permissive- 
ness as two major influencing factors in 
America today, and called education the 
major tool in this society's war on poverty. 
It was the financial crisis facing higher edu- 
cation that drew most of his comment, as 
he recommitted himself to "running Eastern 
financially in the black." 

Dr. Martin made it crystal clear that the 
challenges of the next 12 years would be 
no less demanding than those of the past. 
.As Alumni, we are in a position to help 
our Alma Mater face the critical issues con- 
fronting higher education. 

€Kl2l 

FOR THOSE WHO LOVE Eastern, the week- 
end of May 13-14, which is described at 
length in this issue of the Alumnus, will 
always be one of truly significant memories. 

The camaraderie, pomp and activity of 
every Alumni Day-Commencement Week- 
end make for two days of unforgettable 
events, but this year's may always stand 
head-and-shoulders above all others in the 
minds of Eastern Kentucky University 
alumni. 

In an age marked by campus turmoil and 
often the destruction of campus structures, 
and what many think is a time in which 
basic values have been lost or ignored, the 
members of Eastern Kentucky University's 
Alumni Century Club dedicated the Chapel 
of Meditation, their gift to the University. 

No one who was there will ever forget 
the poignant moment following the pro- 
gram when the Century Club members 
walked reverently through the new "cen- 
ter" of the campus that their sacrifice and 
devotion had built. 




Dr. Robert R. Martin, Eastern president, unveils a plaque given to him by the East 
Alumni Association in appreciation for his twelve years as head of the University. He ill 
Mrs. Martin marked their dozen years at the formal unveiling |uly 3 in the University Cen 
The plaque had been presented at the Alumni Banquet May 13 by C. H. Cifford and T. 
Stone, two former Outstanding Alumnus recipients. 



Something meaningful about the nature 
of Eastern and its graduates was manifest 
the following day, as baccalaureate and 
commencement brought the weekend to a 
close. A large crowd of graduates, rela- 
tives, and faculty attended a completely 
optional baccalaureate service, signaling 
that this program — defunct on many cam- 
puses — is alive and well at Eastern. 

That afternoon, a record crowd of more 
than 11,000 persons packed the Alumni 
Coliseum auditorium and overflowed into 
the corridors as more than 1,600 graduates 
filed across the stage to receive their de- 
grees. 

It was a ceremony so colorful and im- 
pressive that it is difficult to imagine how 
some universities are considering eliminat- 
ing commencement exercises because of a 
lack of interest. 

All of us associated with Eastern are fa- 
miliar with the growing spirit of our Uni- 
versity. At no time has the spirit been in 
greater evidence than during the 1972 
Alumni Day-Commencement weekend.

IT BECOMES increasingly saddening wl 
death continues to strike its ruthless ble 
taking the lives of loved ones. The y|r 
has been extraordinarily cruel in this 
gard. 

The campus this year has mourned 
passing of seven of our members: five s 
dents, one professor and a retired prof 
sor. 

Death first struck the Eastern Commun' 
August 23, 1971, when Mr. T. L. Art 
berry, truly an eloquent speaker and 
wonderful teacher, was taken from us. 
rapid succession five students met dea 
three on the highway. Regina Nieha 
Louisville, only a semester away fril 
graduating, died November 24. Then 
tragic automobile accident on Interstate . 
took the lives of three: Delia Marie Cc 
ington, senior from Georgetown and Ea 
ern's reigning Homecoming Queen; Vioj 
Ellen Collins, Morganfield junior, and B.| 
bara loan Nickell, senior from Xenia, Oh 
Christopher Gibbs Herndon, freshm 
from Richmond, died February 19. 

Now, the campus and thousands 
alumni who loved him mourn the passii 
of lames E. Van Peursem, who, to mc 
Kentuckians and all Eastern people, w 
Mister Music. Mr. Van, as he was affel 
tionately called, was 71 when he died Jui 
11 in Richmond. 

Mr. Van served as head of the Depai 
ment of Music for 35 years before retirii 
in the summer of 1964. Among the \\o 
derful legacies he left Eastern and whii 
the campus still enjoys are the Messi. 
presentation at Christmas time, a traditic 
of 40 years, and the Stephen Foster Mus 
Camp, which he organized in 1936. 

Eastern is poorer, indeed, because of tl 
passing of these beloved members of oi 
Community. €Kl£

rHE WEEKEND 



beginning May 13 was, 
indeed, a special one for 
astern alumni and friends, for it marked the end to an en- 
eavor that had united hundreds of them in a common 
oal . . . the Chapel of Meditation. 



For five years the organizers had fought inflation with 
edication and the battle had been won. 



It was a special weekend also for the five reunion class- 
5 _ 1912, 1922, 1932, 1947, and 1957. Not only did they 
ave an opportunity to gather for their lessons in history, but 
ley also shared in the celebration of a milestone for their 
lumni Association. 



And for one graduate, Robert M. Worthington, the vveek- 
nd was an experience that he's not likely to forget. It was 
VERY SPECIAL WEEKEND. 



Worthington, class of '48, who has advanced to the pin- 
acle of success in his field, serving as Deputy Commissioner, 
.S. Office of Education, in charge of vocational education 
)r the United States, returned to his Alma Mater by invita- 
tion . . . three, to be exact. President Robert R. Martin 
had invited him to deliver the 65th com- 
mencement address on Sunday to 
Eastern's largest graduating 
class, a class number-

ing 1,686. The Alumni Association 
had invited him, as a member of 
the Century Club, to attend the 
dedication of the Chapel of Medita- 
tion. And, his son, Charles, natur- 
ally, invited his father to attend his 
graduation exercises. 

Little did he know, though, that 
there was to be more in store for 
him that special weekend. The se- 
cret of the Outstanding Alumnus 
Award had again been well kept by 
the officers and staff of the Alumni 
Association, as had been some 
other surprises. 

His weekend started uneventfully 
enough. He, like hundreds of others 
who returned for the various activi- 
ties, registered in the sparkling new 
Powell Building, the University 
Center. Receptions, addresses, 
luncheons — it promised to be a 
weekend of organized frenzy. 

As a member of the Century 
Club, he attended the reception 
given in honor of those who had 
contributed toward the completion 
of the Chapel. At the 12:30 lunch- 
eon, he heard Dr. Frank Tinder refer 
to the edifice as "The Center of 
Life" and cast accolades to those 
who lived the dream. 

And there were the other for- 
malities of the dedication: Mr. W. L. 
Keene, retired professor of English, 
read his original poem which had 
been cast in bronze and placed on 



the west side of the building along 
with the list of Century Club mem- 
bers; a response from Guy Hatfield 
II, class of '46, co-chairman of the 
Century Club drive to raise the 
needed $376,000; President Martin, 
who gave the response from the 
University, and of course, the sing- 
ing of the Alma Mater which signals 
an end to any good alumni func- 
tion. 

During the luncheon, the 500 
special guests gasped in amazed ap- 
preciation when Dr. Martin an- 
nounced that Mr. C. H. Cifford, '09, 
one of the Eastern Pioneers, had 
given $50,000 to endow a chair of 
religion and philosophy (The C. H. 
Cifford Chair) at Eastern. It was a 
move that helped in the aquisition 
of a faculty member who would 
teach part-time and serve as chap- 
lain for the Chapel. It was another 
milestone in a series of milestones 
for the University and it was another 
in a series of gifts to Eastern for Cif- 
ford who had already established 
scholarships in education and sci- 
ence, while this and future gifts will 
provide for a fine arts series in class- 
ical music, scholarships in drama, 
and the chair endowment. 

Following the Chapel cere- 
monies, there was a dedication to 
mark the opening of a plaza foun- 
tain located between the Chapel 
and the new University Center.

I Another in a Series of Milestones 




Crowds of alumni and friends inspect the interior of the Chapel following luncheon cere- 
nonies (top, left) during which Mr. C. H. Gifford, '09, received congratulations from Dr. 
tobert R. Martin (Top) after Gifford announced his gift of $50,000 to help establish a Chair 
•f Religion and Philosophy at Eastern. Also on the luncheon program were Guy Hatfield, 
46, co-chairman of the Century Fund Drive (middle left); and Professor W. L. Keene (lower, 
eft) whose poem "The Chapel of Meditation" was cast in bronze and attached to the 
west side of the Chapel. During the afternoon ceremonies, (above) Board of Regent mem- 
bers Gerald May, Marvin Edwards, Earl Combs, Larry Cleveland, Robert Begley and Don 
laney help place the mortar on the cornerstone. 



The dancing monument was a gift 
to the University from Dr. R. Smith 
Park, retired professor of mathe- 
matics and chairman of the Depart- 
ment of Mathematics for 44 years, 
and his wife, Nancy, who had serv- 
ed EKU as librarian for 16 years. 

Later in the afternoon the mes- 
meric fountain complemented the 
pride of those cohorts in sacrifice 
who strolled through the Chapel 
and admired the brilliance of the 
colored windows and solemnity of 
the structure itself. 

Dr. Worthington and the others 
mingled around on the one-eighth 
acre of "private property" which 
was literally and figuratively a mile- 
stone in alumni affairs at Eastern 
Kentucky University, and he, like 
the hundreds of others who had 
been instrumental in its success, 
surely felt a special sense of ac- 
complishment and pride. 

It had been an afternoon of busy 
reflection for everyone. But unlike 
most others. Dr. Worthington was 
contemplating the graduation exer- 
cises the following day since he was 
not only slated to bring the com- 
mencement address, but was to be 
given an honorary Doctor of Laws 
degree as well. 

The anticipation of these respon- 
sibilities and the proud glow that 
marked the day would have made 
his trip from Washington, D. C. 
worthwhile. But for this one grad- 
uate, the real excitement was just 
beginning as he admired the Chapel 
with his friends. 

Indeed, the Chapel was the mean- 
ing of the hour ... a little copper- 
covered octagon surrounded by 
massive buildings had great mean- 
ing on this particular day. 

Outside, the sloping copper roof 
had already begun to lose its orig- 
inal sheen, as copper naturally does, 
but at times it glinted a bit in the 
sunshine that lent itself to the 
warmth of the occasion whenever 
threatening clouds permitted. The 
small white cornerstone was laid in 
place with the help of all the ap- 
propriate dignitaries and witnessed 
by many more who had figuratively 
placed the cement between each 
brick. 



SUMMER, 1972 



And There Was The Fountain Dedication^ Too 



On the opposite side of the build- 
ing five bronze plaques recorded 
for posterity the names of 474 per- 
sons or groups of persons who had 
made it all possible, and a poetic 
tribute by Professor Keene to com- 
memorate their efforts. 

As alumni association officers un- 
veiled the five plaques, a breeze 
whipped the fountain nearby, light- 
ly spraying hundreds who stood to 
admire the permanence of their 
contributions. Whether the chill 
was a result of the weather or the 
excitement of the hour, it was dif- 
ficult to tell. But, everyone seemed 
to enjoy the shivering. 

Inside, plush maroon carpet con- 
trasted with the rows of natural oak 
pews arranged in the same octag- 
onal shape as the building itself. 
The central altar, a pedestaled slab 
of eight-sided marble, held a spray 
of delicate orchids and the memo- 
rial register of more names of East- 
ern Kentucky University people who 
had inspired contributions. 

Around the inside perimeter of 
the Chapel were 47 small bronze 
plaques under each section of the 
kaleidoscopic windows, which bore 
names of persons honored or me- 
morialized by the sponsorship of 
the colorful windows. 

Worthington and all those who 
roamed through those huge, wood- 
carved entrances were aware of the 
history of the edifice. Spiraling costs 
had increased the cost some $176,- 
000 and those in charge of the drive 
had to return for pledge extensions 
beyond the original $200,000 from 
many who had already given. 

In ail, some 1,000 individuals 
made contributions to the Fund 
representing 24 states and three 
foreign countries. 

But despite its history, it stood 
in a picturesque plaza as Worth- 
ington contemplated his gradua- 
tion remarks and found his name 
near the bottom of the alpha- 
betical list of bronzed contributors. 
Others reverently touched the altar, 
pews, windows, plaques . . . almost 
with the belief that despite its total 



divorce from any organized reli- 
gion, the Chapel had been in many 
ways a divine inspiration completed 
with divine assistance. 

Chapel memories lingered into 
the evening as Dr. Worthington, the 
reunion classes, and others pre- 
pared for the reception and annual 
Alumni Banquet. 

But the Associate Commissioner 
of the U. S. Office of Education still 
had no inkling that he was to be 
given more recognition than that 
which he was already aware of. 

The banquet tingled with the ex- 
citement of the day. Extra tables 
were hurriedly prepared for an 
overflow crowd. Dr. Donald Hen- 
rickson, by now a kind of musical 
tradition at Eastern, brought very 
special music, and Karl D. Bays, '55, 
president and chairman of the 
board of the American Hospital 
Supply Corporation, eloquently lent 
meaningful thoughts to a meaning- 
ful occasion. 

Those in reunion classes were 
given special recognition. Although 
none of the 60 year class was pre- 
sent, some 17 members of the 50- 
year class returned for the occasion. 
More than 20 40-year graduates re- 
turned while the 1947 class reunited 
nearly 30 of its members and the 
1957 some 35. 

Earlier in the day they had re- 
counted their post-graduate his- 
tories during luncheon ceremonies. 
Some brought their yearbooks for 
their classmates to sign. Others 
were awed by the mammoth Uni- 
versity Center and they walked a- 
bout quietly to substantiate the 
reality of it. But whatever the re- 
action, the day was theirs — an im- 
portant reminiscense about the best 
days of their lives. 

Adding a touch of surprise to the 
evening, Gifford, and T. K. Stone, 
'29, took a few moments to present 
a bronze plaque expressing the 
Alumni Association's gratitude to 
Dr. Martin for his leadership over 
the past 12 years. "We were think- 
ing about a house for his retire- 
ment," said Gifford, "but we found 




out he already had one. Then v 
considered a tie, but we learne 
that he had one of those too," I 
quipped. 

And still. Dr. Robert M. Worthin; 
ton was inadvertently contempla 
ing remnants of his commencemei 
address the following day when D 
Billy Wells, '58, incoming presider 
of the EKU Alumni Association ros 
to present the 1972 Outstandin 
Alumnus. 

"Our 1972 Outstanding Alumni 
may seem like an ordinary man; 
he said, "he and his wife, Margare 
had five children, three of whor 
followed their father's footsteps an 
came to EKU. He like thousands ci 
other fathers, has suffered the hearl| 
ache of losing a son in Vietnam, an^' 
like many Kentuckians, he is a de 
vout basketball player, having beei 
an all-stater during his high schoc 
years." 

The field had been narrowe( 
considerably at this point, and if thi 
new outstanding alum had an' 
doubts, the following remarks fron 
Dr. Wells removed them. ,

"But even his arrival at Eastern 
lowed him to be more than an 
dinary individual, for he came to 
e campus via Saskatchewan, Can- 
la and Dry Ridge, Kentucky." 
The secret was out. The nearly 
)0 guests may not have known 
ho was about to become the 18th 
utstanding Alumnus of Eastern 
jntucky University, but Robert M. 
'orthington, '48, of Trenton, New 
rsey, had no doubts.

The clues had already hinted at 
the honor, but the tributes con- 
tinued. 

When Wells mentioned that the 
nominee had distinguished himself 
in vocational education, many knew 
the choice, for Dr. Worthington has 
indeed risen to the zenith in this 
area of education for he is presently 
Associate Commissioner for Adult, 
Vocational, and Technical Education 
in the U. S. Office of Education in 
Washington, D.C. 

But his rise to this exalted posi- 
tion began at Eastern Kentucky State 
College in 1948, continued with an 
M.A. from the University of Minne- 
sota in 1949, and a Ph.D. in educa- 
tion nine years later from UM. 

His background indicates that he 
is aware of the gamut of vocational 
education for he began by teaching 




machine shop and drafting in the 
high schools of St. Paul, Minnesota, 
after which he served as Assistant 
State Supervisor in Trade and In- 
dustrial Education for the Minne- 
sota State Department of Education. 

From 1958-1965 he was chairman 
of the Department of Industrial Arts 
at Trenton State College in New 
Jersey, a department that had three 
teachers and 60 students when he 
came and 17 full-time and eight 
part time staff members, 240, full- 
time undergraduates, 150 part-time 
undergraduates and 225 graduates 
when he left. 

The next six years saw Worthing- 
ton serve as Assistant Commissioner 
of Education and State Director of 
Vocational-Technical Education for 
New Jersey where he developed 
one of the nation's largest and most 
extensive systems of vocational 
education with a variety of pro- 
grams on every educational level. 

Under his direction the New 
Jersey "Technology for Children" 
program began operation in more 
than 170 schools and was later cited 
by the National Aerospace Founda- 
tion for its highest achievement 
award as an approach to occupa- 
tional education that excites and 
motivates elementary school youth 
in respect to the world of work. 

And, thanks to him, some 300 
government, business, and indus- 
trial leaders with public and private 
agencies are presently at work on 
a master plan for vocational educa- 
tion in New Jersey through 1980. 

In 1970 the American Vocational 
Association named him the "Man 
of the Year in Vocational Education" 
and one year later, he was named 
"Man of the Year in Distributive 
Education for the State of New 
Jersey." 

As well as being a frequent lec- 
turer. Dr. Worthington is presently 
serving as vocational consultant in 
more than 30 states, in addition to 
being on the President's National 
Advisory Council on Vocational 
Education, the President's Commit- 
tee on Employment for the Handi- 
capped, and the President's Con- 
ference on the Job Corps. 



UMMER, 1972 



All this had broui^ht 13r. Robert 
Worthington to what he termed, 
"one of the highlights of my entire 
life." Approaching the podium, 
shaken with emotion, his first re- 
sponse brought even more surprise. 
"I only wish my mother were here 
tonight," he said, "she's the only 
one who would believe this!" 

As fate (and a conniving Alumni 



Association) would have it, Mrs. 
C. C. Worthington of Dry Ridge 
(Grant County) was indeed there, 
along with a host of relatives. And, 
she wasn't the only one who would 
believe it. 

Dr. Worthington paid tribute to 
Mr. Ralph Whalen, professor of in- 
dustrial education at Eastern as "the 
man who has had the greatest in- 



Bays Addresses Alumni Banquet 

"The most important thing a university can give its 
students is an inquiring mind and discerning judgment. 

— Karl D. Bays, '55 Alumni Banquet Address 



Some ol you have the opportunity to 
visit Eastern often. Others, like myself, get 
here infrequently. But, I know that all of 
you share the pride I have in the tre- 
mendous progress of this University and I 
know you will want to join me in con- 
gratulating Dr. Martin for his leadership 
these last twelve years. 

Vou know, as an alum who reads the 
literature and follows the progress at East- 
ern with great interest, I have a feeling that 
the Alumni Association at Eastern has really 
flourished since Spider Thurman took over 
as Director of Alumni Affairs. It's a real 
credit to the alumni organization, and to 
the leadership Spider has given that so 
many of you are present tonight. 

I particularly congratulate Spider, Don 
Feltner and their staffs on the magnificent 
new Chapel of Meditation that was dedi- 
cated today. 

Class reunions and alumni meetings are 
a great way of recalling memories and of 
renewing acquaintances. They also can 
serve to renew our dedication to many of 
the ideas and ideals that were fresh in our 
minds on our commencement day. 

The most important thing a university 
can give its students is an inquiring mind 
and discerning judgment. That has been 
and is a goal at Eastern. As Dr. Martin 
said on November 17, 1960, in his in- 
auguration address, and I quote: 

"We must, as a college, understand the 
vital connection between education and 
the development of American democracy. 
As lames Monroe once said, A popular 



government without popular informa- 
tion is but the prologue to a farce or a 
tragedy, or perhaps both . Knowledge 
will forever govern ignorance, and a 
people who mean to be their own gov- 
ernors must arm themselves with the 
power which knowledge gives." 

It isn't easy to arm ourselves with the 
power which knowledge gives. It isn't easy 
to be discerning. It's much easier to judge 
and to act on partial information than to 
energetically search for all the facts. It's 
simpler and more fashionable to think 
what everyone else thinks than to honestly 
investigate an issue and reach an individual 
conclusion. 

Whether we like it or not though, it's 
the responsibility of a university as an in- 
stitution of higher learning, and therefore 
its graduates and alumni to persist in 
pursuing objective inquiry. Today, we have 
a greater need than ever for objective in- 
quiry and careful judgments. For today, 
we have before us simultaneously, an 
extraordinary number of complex social 
problems. We also have an abundance of 
people who speak out with easy solutions 
to these complex problems. In my opin- 
ion, many of these easy solutions are the 
result of shallow thinking, lack of inquiry 
and are politically motivated. 

Several years ago, there was a candidate 
lor the Kentucky legislature running for 
office shortly after a no-squirrel-hunting 
law had been passed. The bill provoked 
a storm of opposition and the candidate 
was urged by his advisors to duck any 
mention of it. 




Karl D. Bays, '55 
Alumni Banquet Speaker 

During the course of his campaign 
was at a meeting where a question aro 
concerning the controversial law. As 
started to answer, his advisors motion 
for him to keep still. "No," he whispert 
"I can handle this." Then, turning to I 
audience, he took this firm positio 
"Some of my friends are for this law, ai 
some of my friends are against it. I wa 
you folks to know that I always stand wi 
my friends!" 

At a time when the most importa 
issue in an election was a no-squirrel-hur 
ing law, we could afford to be satisfli 
with that kind of an answer from a pel 
tician. We can't afford that luxury todci 
The complexity of the issues alone d, 
mands careful consideration. The impc 
tance of each of the many issues and tl 
hard realization that all cannot be solvi 
simultaneously commands our cautious sc 
ting of priorities. 

Yet, what we have so apparently and 
abundantly today is superficial reactio 
Constructive criticism frequently is replacf 
by impatience and impulsiveness. Coo 
erative support and critical analysis a 
often replaced by negative reaction ar 
fashionable simplicity. 

As an example of that impatience ar 
negative reaction, two days ago, just a mi 
from my office, a United States Senatij 
stood in front of the administration buili 
ing at Northwestern University and calk 
for impeachment proceedings against Qi 
president. I'm sure this senator and tf

uence on my life." Professor 
/halen was also there to witness 
16 triumph of a star pupil. 

The 1972 Outstanding Alumnus 
cod amid friends and well-wishers 
)llowing the banquet, stunned by 
le award and the gathering of 
lose who had come to see him re- 
vive it. 

Those thoughts of the com- 
lencement address were, for the 



moment, nonexistent. What he had 
originally anticipated as the high- 
light of his weekend was yet to 
come. 

Following the banquet, knots of 
graduates lingered in the cafeteria, 
recounting the day and the spirit 
which had surrounded it. The rain 
seemed to have made them more 
determined to make this day spe- 
cial. They had ignored the weather 



in the face of alumni affairs, and 
almost as if in defeat, the chilly 
showers left and May 14 not only 
brought graduation, but sunshine 
and blue skies that had existed only 
figuratively the day before. 

Sunday May 14 was a beautiful 
day. For Dr. Worthington it was to 
accumulate more memories for this 
truly memorable weekend of his 
life. 



!veral hundred students he was talking to 
ave sincere concerns about the war in 
iet Nam. I think everyone in this room 
lares those concerns. However, the sim- 
listic approach suggested by that senator 
1 that complex issue is ludicrous. 

We frequently ignore the good we have 
:hieved at the risk of losing it in order 
I correct our deficiencies. Our social im- 
erfections are many, but it is folly to 
•iticize the system when our problem is 
ot really the system. Our problem is our 
ck of knowledge of the system and our 
illingness to criticize it rather than in- 
'lligently work towards improving it. 

None of our complex social problems is 
3sy to solve. But, too often, the debate 
)cuses on who's to blame for the prob- 
•m — who's right and who's wrong — 
ither than on constructive solutions. We 
laracteristically are a bit too eager to find 
smeone or some group to pin things on 
hen they go wrong. We too frequently 
'iticize rather than investigate. 

I am a businessman. A good example 
f the problem of placing blame on one 
;gment of society is the current fad of 
laming business for most of our social 
roblems. Obviously, business is the cen- 
al element of our economic system, and 
ur economic system is not perfect. Con- 
ructive criticism is in order, but much of 
16 criticism is not constructive. Many of 
le people who "lead the charge" against 
usiness display a lack of understanding of 
le role and function of business. 

Basically, our economic system is a con- 
Jmer oriented one, which relies on the 
onsumer to make choices rather than hav- 
ig a government committee or individual 
ecide what products and services ought 
3 be available. Generally, the function of 
usiness is to respond to the demands of 
ie consumer and to provide an adequate 
jppiy of whatever they want. 



When the consumer wants change, busi- 
ness changes its products and services. 
The free market takes care of ihat. 

Business also has the responsibility of 
responding to general social value changes. 
Social responsibility is the key phrase 
being used today, but business has al- 
ways had this responsibility. 

Here, again, I think the role of business 
is one of response rather than initiative. 
Were it otherwise, decisions regarding 
population control, abortion, legalization 
of drug usage and many other sensitive 
social issues would be made by a few 
businessmen in a board meeting, rather 
than by citizens in the polling places or 
representatives in government. 

If we are to iudge business, we should 
iudge it by its willingness to respond and 
by the quality of its response. Hasty and 
impulsive responses are often ill-con- 
ceived, shallow and short-lived. Quality 
responses to changing social values take 
time if they are to be truly workable, 
honest and enduring. 

Earlier I said that our economic system 
was not perfect. Neither do I believe that 
business response to social needs is per- 
fect. But, I do think most businessmen 
today welcome constructive criticism. Like 
everyone else, we understand that con- 
structive criticism is the catalyst for social 
progress. But, if business responded to 
ill-founded or superficial criticism, it would 
create economic and social chaos. 

Business is only one example. Universi- 
ties, government and other institutions are 
similarly criticized. If, for example. Bob 
Martin responded to every criticism of his 
administration, he could easily be led 
down a chaotic path. 

As citizens of this society, we must 
recognize both the attributes and the de- 
ficiencies of our system. We must refrain 



trom emphasizing one at the expense of 
the other, or we will lose the perspective 
necessary for progress. We must resist 
the temptation to react critically before we 
have investigated intelligently or we will 
assist confusion and cloud truth. 

As university graduates, we have some 
special social responsibilities because of 
our education and opportunities. These 
responsibilities do not diminish with time. 
Rather, they increase with our age because 
of our experiences. 

The first responsibility is to be truly 
inquisitive. This demands youthful ideal- 
ism coupled with mature realism. We must 
maintain an open mind and an impartial 
perspective regarding truth and freedom. 
We must cultivate our curiosity, and we 
must communicate candidly. We must 
listen to others regardles of the length 
of their hair, the color of their skin, or 
their nation of origin. We must identify 
not only our own goals, but those of others 
or we shall never find consensus. 

Our second responsibility is to be sup- 
portive. This demands patience and trust. 
We must carefully evaluate objections and 
criticism before joining dissension. We 
must assume propriety and good faith 
rather than malfeasance and ill-will. 

Our third responsibility is to seek com- 
munity. All of us desire to make this a 
better world, but we frequently espouse 
different means of achieving that goal. 
That common purpose is buried beneath 
our diverse life styles and philosophies. 
We must expose that community of pur- 
pose so that it can become a living thing 
and so that we can achieve re-union. 

These responsibilities are a heavy bur- 
den, but they also are a vital opportunity. 
I have brought them to your attention not 
as an assignment of new tasks, but as a 
reminder of tasks unfinished. SKlil

Parents, friends, and relatives 
were clumped around caps and 
gowns on the plaza. Cameras re- 
corded the day for posterity . . . the 
fountain proclaimed a new era for 
the nearly 1,700 graduates . . . 

In addition to all the other high- 
lights of the weekend, twenty-three 
ROTC cadets received their com- 
missions as second lieutenants in 
the U.S. Army. The head of EKU's 
Military Science Department, Col. 
Joseph Pilant, was also awarded the 
Legion of Merit by the First United 
States Army for meritorious service 
during the three years he served as 
professor of military science at East- 
ern. 

For Dr. Worthington, what had 
been his chief objective for the 
weekend was about to arrive, the 
commencement address. He had 
the honor of delivering the address 
before the largest graduating class 
in Eastern's history, and the largest 
crowd ever to assemble for the oc- 
casion, some 11,000. 

And among those 1,700 graduates 
was one of special interest to the 
commencement speaker. Charles 
Worthington, his son, was to receive 
his B.S. in recreation, and it was Dr. 
Robert M. Worthington who made 
that presentation. 

In later ceremonies. Professor 
Whalin presented Dr. Worthington 
with his honorary Doctor of Laws 
degree from his Alma Mater. 

The weekend had ended. Mr. 
Gifford, '09, had flown back to New 
York for a director's meeting of the 
Broadvv'ay Savings Bank; Mrs. Alma 
Rice Bascom, '07, the oldest return- 
ing graduate, was back in Sharps- 
burg after her return; and Dr. 
Robert M. Worthington was in 
Washington to call a meeting of his 
staff to tell them about his weekend 
at Eastern. 

And the Chapel of Meditation 
still knelt on the plaza between the 
massive buildings, a tribute to a 
group of daring people who had 
had their day and a reminder to at 
least one man that Alumni weekend, 
1972, had been the time of his life. 




The annual Alumni Banquet featured the presentation of the 1972 Oi 
standing Alumnus (above) as Dr. Robert M. Worthington, '48, left, t

THE EASTERN KENTUCKY UNIVERSITY ALUMNL 



— The Largest In Eastern's History 





n Commencement Address: 

Worthington Advises Grads To Beware Of Technology 



Dr. Worthington address- 
ed the largest graduating 
class in EKU's history and 
the largest crowd ever to 
witness the annual event 
— some 11,000. His words 
to the graduates follow. 



By our presence here today, you, 
our parents, and I are filling very 
raditional roles. Generations of 
traduates have sat restlessly in their 
)ot black gowns as they were bored 
ky longwinded speakers pontificat- 
ng about the same time-worn 
hemes. Generations of justly proud 
)arents have watched anxiously as 
heir sons and daughters received 
heir degrees for they have suffered 
ind worked for this moment fully 
IS much as you have although in 
lifferent ways. And, generations of 
peakers have come to podiums on 
hese same occasions to tell grad- 



uates about the responsibilities they 
must bear and the opportunities 
which await them in the Golden 
Age to come. And I wouldn't dream 
of depriving you of that same op- 
portunity which I experienced here 
many years ago. I can't promise 
not to be boring but I can promise 
not to be longwinded! 

It has been more than thirty years 
ago since I came to this campus in 
1939 to prepare for a career as a 
teacher. I chose Industrial Arts be- 
cause of the influence of a great 
teacher, Professor Ralph Whalin, 
who was then and still is today, in 
his 34th year at Eastern, concerned 
first and foremost about his stu- 
dents! He emphasized the impor- 
tance of craftsmanship, of doing 
every job to the best of your ability. 
Professor Whalin, chosen by the 
faculty as the first faculty member 
to serve on Eastern's Board of Re- 
gents, exemplifies for me the great- 
ness of Eastern! 



While I have had occasion to re- 
turn to the campus from time to 
time over the years, this weekend 
has given me a more leisurely op- 
portunity to observe and to reflect 
upon the changes that have occur- 
red at Eastern since my freshman 
days of more than three decades 
ago. 

An initial and immediate reaction 
relates to the sheer growth and 
beauty of the campus. The build- 
ings that have been erected on this 
campus in recent years show a gen- 
uine concern for providing a superi- 
or physical setting in order that the 
university may address itself to its 
three major functions, teaching, re- 
search, and public service. 

A second reaction relates to the 
growth of the student population 
served by the university. From the 
thousand students who were my 
classmates this population has 
grown to more than 10,000 stu- 
dents. This is substantial evidence 



iUMMER, 1972 



13 



that the university is seeking to 
serve a wide range of student inter- 
ests. 

A third reaction must focus upon 
the quality of services and activities 
provided for the student body. The 
new University Center is an extra- 
ordinary example of the commit- 
ment of an institution to provide for 
this area of student needs. The lec- 
ture and concert programs of the 
university are as rich in quality and 
variety as one might find at any uni- 
versity in the country. 

A fourth reaction relates to the 
expansion of the research and pub- 
lic service role of the university. For 
example, Eastern is presently op- 
erating two projects in Pikeville 
concerned with career education. 
These projects are receiving con- 
siderable national recognition for 
their quality and productivity. They 
are examples of what an imaginative 
university can do if it accepts se- 
riously its role to serve the people 
of its region. 

My final reaction, and I have re- 
served it because it is the most im- 
portant, relates to curriculum 
changes that have occurred here 
particularly beginning in the mid- 
sixties with the achievement of uni- 
versity status. It is very obvious that 
the far-sighted leadership of Presi- 
dent Robert R. Martin and the Board 
of Regents, in its organizational 
plan for a university, envisioned a 
rapidly changing role for the institu- 
tion. The customary upper division 
Colleges of Arts and Sciences, Busi- 
ness, and Education became part- 
ners with a new type of College de- 
voted to career education, the Col- 
lege of Applied Arts and Technol- 
ogy. New fields of study in law en- 
forcement, corrections, nursing, 
food service technology, industrial 
technology, and horticulture emerg- 
ed. Fields that prepare students for 
the world of work after two years 
of study but with career ladders 
available for further study at the 
baccalaureate and graduate levels. 
Many four year colleges and uni- 
versities are just now beginning to 
see the possibilities of these kinds 
of programs. The expansion of East- 
ern's graduate school programs. 




Dr. Robert M. Worlhington, '48, not only received the 1972 Outstanding Alumnus awar 
but the following day, he was given an honorary doctor of laws degree from his alma mate 
As Dr. Robert R. Martin reads the proclamation, Mr. Ralph Whalin, EKU professor of ii 
dustrial education to whom Worthington attributes much of his success, prepares to plai 
the hood on the new honoree. 



new curricula in Arts and Sciences, 
Business, and Education has been 
remarkable. Programs of study are 
being offered in these academic 
units that were unheard of when I 
was a student at this institution. Dr. 
Martin's election this year to the 
Presidency of the American As- 
sociation of State Colleges and Uni- 
versities is recognition of the quality 
of his leadership in building a dy- 
namic and responsive institution. 
He has indeed led Eastern toward 
a vision of greatness! 

in just a few short decades this 
institution changed radically, but 
man himself has changed as well. 
He has attained, in great measure, 
a goal which he has long anticipated 
and desired. He has become in 
Descartes' phrase, "the master and 
possessor of nature." He has pre- 
cipitated a scientific and tech- 
nological revolution which contin- 
ues at an ever-increasing pace and 
has largely accomplished the sub- 
stitution of knowledge for labor as 
the principal force of production 
within our society. 

During the past 60 years, man has 
broken sharply with all human ex- 
perience; he has reversed his re- 



lationship to the earth's resource 
Agriculture, the original basis ( 
civilization, itself has lost its dorr 
inance! In the United States it no\ 
employs fewer than 6 percent of th 
economically active populatior 
And today, more than 50% of th 
non-farm labor force has ceased t 
wear the blue collar of the factor 
worker or manual laborer. 

This incredible phenomenon c 
rapid social change has led Kennet 
Boulding, a well known economic 
and imaginative social thinker, t 
proclaim the present moments as ' 
"turning point" in human histor>i 
He asserts that, "the world of toda' 
is as different from the world ii 
which I was born as that world wa* 
from Julius Caesar's. I was born ii 
the middle of human history. T( 
date, roughly, almost as much ha 
happened since I was born as hap 
pened before." The truth of thij 
startling statement can be illustratec 
in a number of ways. For example 
Alvin Toffler, in his book Futurt 
Shock, has observed that "if th( 
last 50,000 years of man's existencf 
were divided into lifetimes of ap 
proximately 62 years each, there 
have been 800 lifetimes (to date) 



14

f these, fully 650 were spent in 
ives. Only during the last 70 life- 
Ties has it been possible to com- 
unicate effectively from one life- 
ne to another, as writing has made 

possible to do. Only during the 
St 6 lifetimes did masses of men 
le the printed word. Only during 
e last 4 has it been possible to 
easure time with any precision, 
nly in the last 2 has anyone any- 
here used an electric motor. And 
e overwhelming majority of all the 
aterial goods we use in daily life 
day have been developed within 
e present, the 800th lifetime." In 
immation then, man has spent 10,- 
30 years for agriculture, a century 
' two for industrialism, and now 

ening before us is what Toffler 
rms "the age of super-industrial- 



now have more new treatments and 
cures than ever before with the re- 
sult that the medical profession has 
become increasingly differentiated 
and specialized and tends to con- 
centrate its efforts in a few major 
urban centers of medical ex- 
cellence. The obvious corollary to 
this fact that the availability of ade- 
quate medical care elsewhere is de- 
clining. And although there have 
been marvelous transportation im- 
provements, mass communication 
innovations, and the like since 
World War II with resultant bene- 
fits to education, journalism, com- 
merce, and sheer convenience, 
these have also been accompanied 
by a rise in social unrest. 

Technology's continued advance 
has created as much anxiety and 




hother highlight of the day for Worthington was his opportunitY to award a B.S. in recrea- 
bn to his son, Charles. As Dr. Leonard Taylor, left, and Dr. Lyman Ginger, State Superin- 
fndent of Public Instruction, look on, the son receives the degree from his proud father. 



m" or the "post-industrial so- 
lety." 

These tremendous scientific and 
'chnological achievements, how- 
v'er, have taken on an increasingly 
roblematic character. After three 
5nturies during which they were 
;garded almost universally as the 
jpreme means of solving human 
roblems, they have now come to 
e seen by many people as the 
Jurce of problems which they are 
erhaps unable to solve. For ex- 
nriple, in the field of medicine, we 



even fear, as it has satisfaction; and 
these sentiments have begun to take 
form in movements of criticism and 
opposition to the current state of 
scientific civilization. For example, 
you may recall that in 1969 a group 
of scientists from the Massachusetts 
Institute of Technology tried to 
organize a nationwide work stop- 
page on all scientific projects until 
some serious thought and analysis 
could be given to the direction and 
consequences of our "super indus- 
trial" technology. And recent years 



have also witnessed the advent of 
the counter culture with its empha- 
sis on a more simplistic form of 
life in close communion with na- 
ture. 

What, you may ask, has precip- 
itated these types of reactions? In- 
itially, no doubt, it was the discovery 
and use of nuclear weapons that 
produced these widespread doubts 
as to whether increasing scientific 
knowledge could be equated with 
increasing human happiness. The 
menace of nuclear war has kept 
these doubts alive; and they have 
been strengthened by other, un- 
welcome byproducts of technologi- 
cal advance such as the population 
explosion, pollution of the environ- 
ment, depletion of natural resources, 
occupational and social disloca- 
tions, and threats to privacy and 
the political significance of the in- 
dividual. 

We have now reached in human 
history, however, the point of rec- 
ognition of the multiplicity of time 
and space. Because of transporta- 
tion and communication innova- 
tions, contemporary man can exper- 
ience a thousand lives in a thousand 
places in as many years — all in 
one moment. Every seasoned re- 
porter has had the experience of 
working on a fast breaking story 
that changes its shape and meaning 
before his words are put down on 
paper. Today, the whole world is 
a fast breaking story. There are no 
longer any national boundaries as 
the network of social ties is so tight- 
ly inter-woven that the con- 
sequences of contemporary events 
radiate instantaneously around the 
world. 

Marshall McLuhan notes that the 
"medium, or process, of our time- 
electronic technology is shaping 
and restructuring patterns of social 
interdependence and every aspect 
of our personal lives. It is forcing 
us to reconsider and reevaluate 
practically every thought, every ac- 
tion, and every institution formerly 
taken for granted. Everything is 
changing: you, your family, your 
neighborhood, your education, your 
job, your government, your relation 
to others. And they are changing

dramatically." \ULuhan claims that 
"time has ceased, space has vanish- 
ed, that we now live in a global 
world, a simultaneous happening" 
in which every action taken by an 
individual is likely to have an eco- 
logical, economic, political and 
social repercussions of which we 
may not even be aware. John 
Donne's famous phrase that "No 
man is an island," rings particularly 
true today. Fortunately, most people 
now realize that unbridled scientific 
growth and technological innova- 
tion are no longer self-evident 
goals. Thus, the way is open for 
■young men and women such as 
yourselves to decide the future form 
of your social lives and the contri- 
bution you can make to your coun- 
try and to mankind! 

What Toffler calls "future shock" 
— the shattering stress and dis- 
orientation that we induce in in- 
dividuals by subjecting them to too 
much change too fast — can be ar- 
rested by controlling both the rate 
as well as the direction of change 
in your personal lives and society 
at large. 

In the years to come, there will 
be only two kinds of people, the 
victims of "future shock" and the 
victors over it. Traditionally, the 
colleges and universities have pre- 
pared individuals to meet these 
types of challenges, and I am sure 
that the education you have re- 
ceived here at Eastern Kentucky 
University has equipped you with 
the ability to recognize and adapt 
to rapidly changing social, eco- 
nomic, and political conditions. 
You have, through your education, 
acquired the tools for humanizing 
the future in a time when changing 
our relationship to the resources 
that surround us, by violently ex- 
panding the scope of change, and 
by accelerating its pace, we have 
broken so irretrievably with the 
past. 

Some of you may be tempted to 
ask yourselves, "Why bother — why 
not drop out, why not try to turn 
the clock back to some more pris- 
tine form of existence? Wouldn't 
that enhance my potential for in- 
dividual freedom in this confusing, 



ra[)idly changing world?" This re- 
sponse, I think, would be a mis- 
take, for while sentimentalists prat- 
tle about the supposedly unfettered 
freedom of the primitive man, 
evidence collected by anthropolo- 
gists and historians alike contradicts 
them. John Gardner, the former 
Secretary of Health, Education and 
Welfare, put the matter tersely 
when he said: "the primitive tribe 
or pre-industrial community has 
usually demanded far more pro- 
found submission of the individual 
to the group than has any modern 
society." As an Australian social 
scientist was told by a Temme 
tribesman in Sierra Leone: "When 
Temne people choose a thing, we 
must all agree with the decision — 
this is what we call co-operation." 
This is, of course, what we call 
conformity! 

Thus while the post-industrial 
society might appear to herald a 
decline in personal freedom, the 
elevation of the group above the 
individual, and a submersion of the 
individuals' political significance, 
these results are by no means fore- 
gone conclusions. Increased per- 
sonal freedom and responsiveness 
by government to the needs of the 
individual will not come about 



automatically. It will become 
matter of the wise and creative i 
plementation of technology its 
In his study of the effects of te' 
nology on the future of soci( 
Emanuel Mesthene, of Harvard U 
versify, said that if we wish to p 
serve even modified democr; 
values in a multibillion person sc 
ety, then increased uses of the co

an absolute necessity. 

Using an analogy from ballet: 
the set becomes more complex, 1 
choreography required to maint 
a given level of coordination f 
comes far more difficult. The co 
puter, modern data processors, a 
new tele-communications netwo 
provide the refinement and t 
means to treat people both as 
dividuals and as a part of soci( 
as a whole. 

Mesthene also recognized th 
the central problem about tec 
nological advance is that "whileU 
creates new possibilities for humi 
choice and action, it leaves th 
disposition uncertain." Thus, wf 
its effects will be and what ends 
will serve are not inherent in tec 
nology itself, but depend on wh 
man will do with technology. Tec 




Another milestone of the weekend involved Stephanie Schloemer, Frankfort, who becan 
the 23,000th graduate of Eastern Kentucky University. Dr. Martin acknowledged her uniq 
honor as she received her degree.

lology thus makes possible a future 
if open ended options but only if 
ou realize that it can have both 
lositive and negative effects, usuai- 
/ both at the same time. There are 
wo distinct problems then in the 
ge of super-industrialism. The 
irst is a positive one taking full ad- 
antage of the opportunities it of- 
ers. 

The second is a negative one 
voiding the unfortunate con- 
equences which flovi' from the ex- 
ijoitation of these opportunities. 

Albert Speer, who served as Hit- 
3r's Minister of Armaments a con- 
'oversial figure and perceptive ob- 
brvor of society, issued a prophetic 
l/arning to the world at his Nurem- 
erg Trial. He said that "the factor 
nat distinguished Hitler's tyranny 
'-om that of all other dictatorships 
1 history was the one factor that 
j/ould inevitably increase in the 
'jture, for Hitler used technology 
'i his assault on humanity. With it, 
e dominated his own people. Tele- 
hone, teletype, and radio made it 
ossible to transmit his commands 
irectly to all levels in German 
ociety, where because of their high 
luthority they were carried out un- 
jritically." Speer then went on to 
ay that "the more technological 
tie world becomes, the more es- 
fential will be the need for critical 
linking on the part of the individ- 
al. 

Sociology tells us that pace and 
omplexity of modern urban living 
ause much of the alienation that 
xists in society today. But this is 
nereiy additional evidence of the 
eed for the individual to possess 
ie capacity to adapt quickly to a 
hanging world. Cybernetics, for 
xample, has eliminated hundreds 
f blue collar occupations but has 
imultaneously created a multi- 
'licity of new occupations that 
idn't exist even five years ago. 

The point of all this is that you 
/ill have to be able to think critic- 
lly as an individual and adapt to 
hange quickly if you are to succeed 
1 the future! The central task of 
iOur future education is to expand 
|he adaptive capabilities you now 
lossess. it is no longer sufficient to

mencement address, which he did. However, there were other surprises In store during 
the "most important weekend in his life." 



understand the past or even the 
present. You must now learn to 
make repeated, probabilistic, in- 
creasingly long-range assumptions 
about future jobs, family forms, hu- 
man relationships, ethics, morals, 
technology, and organizational 
structures. You must rethink every 
aspect of our post-industrial south. 
This is what social critics like Ralph 
Nader and Rachel Carson have been 
trying to tell us, that the unwelcome 
byproducts of increased technology 
and scientific innovation are with us 
today because it has up until now 
been no one's explicit business to 
foresee and anticipate them. 

That is the task that faces you in 
the future! The education you have 
received here at Eastern Kentucky 
University has given you a start and 
a capacity to deal with the present. 
But you must constantly strive to 
increase understanding of the en- 
tire range of human motivations and 
emotions. Literature and the arts 
traditionally has supplied much of 
this insight, but you must now sup- 
plement these aids with technology 



itself. Through instant information 
retrieval and modern communica- 
tions devices you can overcome the 
fragmentary approach which we 
have previously used to try to solve 
the world's problems. Because of 
technology we can now instantly 
absorb a sense of the whole subject 
— a gestalt of the world rather than 
just a grasp of the immediate or the 
provincial. 

Thus if you have a firm grasp of 
the fact that technology can be both 
boon and burden at the same time, 
you will be able to begin to cope 
with strains of a "super-industrial 
age." You must shift your educa- 
tion into the future tense, for in the 
years ahead, we cannot afford to let 
anyone become as Speer put it" an 
uncritical receiver of orders." 

As each of you pass this signifi- 
cant milestone in your career, 
remember that education is a life 
long process! Continue your educa- 
tion not only to assure your own 
personal fulfillment in the years 
ahead but to help this great Nation 
of ours remain strong and free!

THE EASTERN KENTUCKY UNIVERSITY ALUMNU: 



Pi 



THE EASTERN CHRONICLE 

a precis of nevvs about Eastern and its Alumni 



oed ROTC: 
Saluting The Girls 

Eastern was one of 10 universities 
esignated recently by the Depart- 
lent of the Army to begin training 
'omen students in their Reserve 
)fficer Training Corps programs be- 
inning with the 1972 fall semester. 

The program is a five-year pilot 
reject that, for the first time, will 
ermit women to be commissioned 
5 second lieutenants through Army 
OTC participation. 
I EKU president Robert R. Martin 
'as informed of the Army's an- 
ouncement by Senator John Sher- 
lan Cooper. 

Eastern was the first choice of 
ve institutions nominated by First 
.rmy for the women's officer train- 
ig program. In addition to Eastern, 
ther designated universities are 
ennsyivania State University, Flor- 
ia State University, South Carolina 
tate University, Indiana University, 
ouisiana State University, Texas 
.&I University, South Dakota State 
'niversity, Arizona State University 
nd the University of Hawaii. 

Eastern currently has the second 
irgest voluntary ROTC program in 
le nation with 670 cadets enrolled 
n the Richmond campus. Texas 
I & M has the largest. Within the 
irst Army, only Virginia Military 
istitute, which has a compulsory 
rogram, is larger than Eastern's. 

Army ROTC has been offered on 
ie Eastern campus since 1936 when 
eld artillery officer training was be- 
un. The program was changed to 
eneral military science in 1956. 

Eastern has offered military pro- 
rams for women for a number of 
|ears, but until the recent an- 
ouncement they were not eligible 
commissioning. Two coed

groups — a sponsor corps and the 
Valianettes, a coed drill — have been 
active as performing and service 
organizations without college cred- 
it. 

ROTC spokesmen indicated that 
women students now enrolled at 
Eastern may be able to enroll in 
the program by taking the basic 
ROTC course on an accelerated 
basis. 

Guidelines for the women's train- 
ing program, which was approved 
by the Army Chief of Staff February 
14, state that women would partici- 
pate only in the four-year ROTC 
program. An accelerated, two-year 
program with two summer camps is 
available to men. A modified sum- 
mer camp for women is planned 
beginning in 1975. 

Following the initial year of 
participation, women will be elig- 
ible for Army ROTC scholarships. 



UMMER, 1972 



The Regents: 

Considering Coeds & Costs 

The Eastern Board of Regents has 
adopted, on a continuing basis, a 
policy on self-regulated hours for 
women students. 

Under the policy the privilege of 
self-regulated hours would be 
granted to graduate students, and 
those women who have spent one 
semester of full-time work totaling 
at least 12 credit hours and have 
parental permission. 

A year ago, the Board adopted a 
self-regulated hours system on a 
trial basis. 

In other action the Board in- 
creased rental rates in University 
housing to compensate for higher 
operating costs. 

Dr. Robert R. Martin, EKU presi- 
dent, said in proposing the in- 
creases that they would generally be 
$5 per semester for dormitory 
rooms and $2.50 per month for 
married student housing. 

He attributed the rising costs in 
part to the fact that "measures for 
the protection of persons and prop- 
erty in the dormitories need to be 
strengthened," requiring the em- 
ployment of additional security 
personel. 

Other causes for the increase, he 
said, are a rise in the minimum 
wage and unemployment com- 
pensation and rising costs for elec- 
trical and gas services. 

In response to a request from 
Charles Kelhoffer, president of the 
EKU student association, that the 
University make birth control de- 
vices available to students, the 
Board adopted the following policy 
statement: 

"Those students who choose to 

29 



defy the laws of the commonwealth 
and to ignore the basic tenets of 
organized religion with regard to 
promiscuous sexual behavior have 
the option, as citizens, of availing 
themselves of the counsel and serv- 
ices of a private physician or a pub- 
lic health agency, both of which 
have the legal authority to prescribe 
birth control devices." 

The policy on self-regulated 
hours stipulates that certain dormi- 
tories be designated for women 
electing the privilege and that they 
be provided with night hosts after 
closing hours. A security officer 
will be assigned each dormitory 
housing women with self-regulated 
hours. 

Hours for women not qualifying 
for self-regulated hours, or not elec- 
ting to exercise their privilege will 
be midnight Sunday through Thurs- 
day and 2 a.m. on Friday and Satur- 
day. 

The Board also approved a list of 
eight dates, all Saturday or Sunday 
afternoons, that open houses may 
be conducted in men's and wom- 
en's residence halls during the 
1972-73 academic year. The time for 
the open houses was set at two- 
and-a-half hours in length. 



The Eastern Progress: 
At The Top Again 

Recently, The Eastern Progress re- 
ceived Columbia's highest overall 
newspaper rating of Medalist, one 
of four which was awarded. 

The editors for the 1971-72 Pro- 
gress were Mike Park, Richmond, 
editor-in-chief; Jack Frost, Rich- 
mond, managing editor; and Jim 
Ross, Berea, business manager. 

The new editor-in-chief is Jack 
Frost, Richmond, who served as 
sports editor during 1970-71 and 
managing editor in 1971-72. 

The new managing editor is Bob 
Babbage, a journalism major from 
Lexington. He was academics editor 
in 1969-70 and news editor the next 
year. 

Re-appointed business manager 
for the second year is Jim Ross, a 
pre-med student from Berea. 



The Graduates: 
At The Top, Too 

A total of 141 graduating seniors 
were honored for academic excel- 
lence during the 65th annual spring 
commencement exercises at East- 
ern. 

Sixty-seven graduated "with high 
distinction", attaining an academic

President Martin: 
Directing AASCU 

With the dawn of the 70's state 
colleges and universities began tak- 
ing a long, careful look at them- 
selves. They needed to find out 
exactly who they were. 

They didn't want to imitate the 
long-established major state land- 
grant universities or private liberal 
arts colleges. They felt they had a 
distinctive role to play in the total 



spectrum of higher education. 

Now was the time for objective 
thinking about their role and goals, 
while they were in a period of de- 
velopment. 

In this period of development, 
the fastest-growing degree granting 
institutions in higher education to- 
day comprise the American Associa- 
tion of State Colleges and Llniversi- 
ties. 

i^Jhe AASCU has 288 member in- 
stitutions in 46 states, the District of 
Columbia, Guam, and the Virgin Is- 
lands which: 

t^Enroll over two million students, 
or 25 per cent of the nation's total. 
Half the students attending public 
four-year colleges today are enroll- 
ed in AASCLl institutions. Minori- 
ties make up 11 per cent of the total. 
j/'Prepare almost half of the coun- 
try's elementary and secondary 
teachers. 

(^Comprise the fastest-growing seg- 
ment of American four-year educa- 
tion. 

t^Have more than tripled their en- 
rollment over the past ten years — a 
percentage increase over twice that 
of U. S. four-year colleges in gen- 
eral. 

Last November, the presidents of 
the member institutions met in 
Denver to install a leader for the 
Association Eastern Kentucky Uni- 
versity President, Dr. Robert R. 
Martin. 

His election as president of the 
AASCU was a fitting tribute to a 
man who has devoted a lifetime to 
the state's education system, the last 
dozen years as EKU president. 

"It's a signal honor to our institu- 
tion and to myself that I was elect- 
ed president of the Association," 
Dr. Martin said. 

"A change for improvement — a 
change which is of value in a sit- 
uation — is the only kind of change 
we advocate," he pointed out. "I am 
talking about strengthening the 
quality of the faculty by experience 
and improved techniques and the 
improvements in student affairs." 



UMMER, 1972 



31 



Along with his predecessors in 
office, the Board of Regents, the 
faculty, and the alumni, Dr. Martin 
has expanded the curriculum, up- 
graded the faculty, elevated the 
teacher-training standards, estab- 
lished student rights and respons- 
ibilities, and directed the physical 
growth. 

The funds for most of these proj- 
ects have come about through his 
special skills in financing education, 
and his enthusiasm for aiding the 
cause of higher education. 

Of all his accomplishments, how- 
ever. President Martin is proudest 
of Eastern's University status gained 
in 1966. He was instrumental in the 
long, hard struggle for recognition 
for the state's four regional institu- 
tions. 

"The greatest, single event in the 
history of the University is the day 
we were granted university status," 
he said. "As the history of the in- 
stitution is written, we will continue 
to talk about how it was before uni- 
versity status and afterward." 

But, Dr. Martin is not content to 
rest on his laurels; rather, he is 
striving toward even higher goals, 
including an increase in enrollment 
to 12,000 students by the Univer- 
sity's 100th birthday in 1974. 

However, physical growth is not 
his primary objective. "I feel some- 
times that we have not changed and 
improved in the area of curriculum 
as much as we should have, because 
of the focus on physical change," 
he said. "The real challenge before 
us lies in these areas and how they 
can be improved." 

He brought his enthusiasm and 
know-how with him to his post as 
president of the AASCU in which 
he presided over all general meet- 
ings of the Association and at all 
meetings of the Board of Directors 
as outlined in the AASCU bylaws. 

"For the first time," Dr. Martin 
said, "There will be a Distinguished 
Service Award given to an outstand- 
ing alumnus of a state college or 
university. Also for the first time, a 
president of one of our member 
institutions will speak to the annual 
Association meeting." 

The Association holds its regular 



meeting in the fall of each calendar 
year, with special meetings possibly 
being called by a majority of the 
Board of Directors at any time or 
upon written request by at least 25 
member institutions. 

The last meeting of the Board of 
Directors in Boca Raton, Florida, 
for example, was devoted to various 
legislation for the state-supported 
school, public-private relationships, 
lobbying in Washington, and the 
future of society and AASCU institu- 
tions. 

Dr. Martin's meetings with the 
Board of Directors have included 
developing and recommending pol- 
icies to be presented to the Associa- 
tion and to other groups on behalf 
of the Association, establishing and 
discharging committees, employing 
an executive director and describing 
his duties, and, upon recommenda- 
tion of the Executive Director, 
authorizing and approving the em- 
ployment of necessary staff, ap- 
proving and adjusting the budget 
as necessary, and acting for the As- 
sociation in all matters of business 
outside the regular meetings. 

The President of AASCU may also 
establish special committees and fill 
vacancies on committees and dele- 
gations at his discretion. 

One such committee is that of 
the Association's International Cen- 
ters, which Dr. Martin chairs. "In 
September I hope to work with a 
team of presidents in an effort to 
select a site for the newest Inter- 
national Center," he said. "It will 
be in the South Pacific area — prob- 
ably Singapore, Malaysia, or Taiwan. 
We also hope to get permission to 
visit Red China while we are on the 
trip." 

Dr. Martin's election by member 
representatives shows that his ef- 
forts in, the field of public higher 
education have not gone unnoticed 
by his fellow presidents. 

And it shows that the members 
of AASCU are aware of what his 
enthusiasm, dedication and exper- 
tise has done for Eastern Kentucky 
University, the community, and the 
future of this state's educational 
system. — By |im House

I am finishing up my eight-year term as 
Executive Secretary of CWENS, and I've al- 
ways been grateful to Eastern for the op- 
portunity to work with this organization. 
I have traveled to many of the member 
universities, and met some of the most 
marvelous people during my years on the 
National Executive Board. It certainly has 
kept me from getting into the Tired House- 
wife Syndrome! 

Gerry and I were very sorry that we were 
unable to attend the 15th reunion of our 
class last year. We did enjoy the cor- 
respondence about it, and caught up with 
some news via friends who did attend. 

We invite any and all Eastern grads who 
plan to visit Walt Disney World to drop 
on over to Dade City and see us — we're 
just 10 minutes from 1-75, about 35 miles 
northeast of Tampa.

Eastern gave us something we can never 
forget. It gave us a new lease on life at a 
time when it could have been crucial to 
our future. My husband, Andy, had just 
returned home from World War II and was 
very discouraged when jobs were so dif- 
ficult to find. We have been so thankful 
for the opportunities Eastern gave us. 

Our family is very active in the American 
Field Service Program. In the past, we 
have opened our home to foreign exchange 
students who were touring the U. S. At 
one time there were 37 of them housed 
in our little town for a week. 

Give our regards to everyone at Eastern 
and tell them to keep up the good work.

I have sent a copy of my recently pub- 
lished book. Christian Poems For Every- 
day Living to the Eastern library with the 
hope that its simple spiritual messages will 
be helpful to those who choose to read 
it. 

Since I have no children, I wanted to 
leave something behind to speak for me, 
so I wrote this little book. It contains the 
four dominant themes of my life: love of 
God, love and concern for others, love of 
nature, and love of our wonderful coun- 
try. 

I appreciate all that Eastern did for me 
while I was there. I had many splendid in- 
structors whose memories I will always 
treasure. May Cod continue to bless the 
efforts of all who are working for the bet- 
terment of the young people there.

I would like to express my sincere a 
preciation for the many informative new 
letters from the Alumni Association. I cat 
tell you how much I have missed my c< 
lege years since leaving Eastern some fo 
years ago. Perhaps no part of my life w 
more enjoyable or as fulfilling as tho 
four years of my education. 

In retrospect, of all the dedicated pr( 
lessors I had at Eastern, I believe that C 
Keen in history. Dr. Sutton and Dr. Bur 
hart in English, and Dean Coates were tf 
most meaningful and helpful. From the 
I gained a tremendous insight into tf 
field of teaching. Their dynamic persoi 
alities and methods of approaching thd 
subjects were meaningful to my preseij 
profession.

I would like to thank you very much k 
sending the newsletter. I appreciate 
very much since I had the chance to spen 
a wonderful year of study at Eastern whic 
included the great friendship of Dea 
Ingels. 

I was married in 1969 to Fritz Falk, 
painter and musician. We are living at 7 
Stuttgart 80, Waldburgstr. 37, Stuttgar

THE EASTERN KENTUCKY UNIVERSITY ALUMNUS 



Alumni Report 



Alumni Day must go down in alumni 
nistorv as one of the important milestones 
, n our development. The Chapel of Medi- 
i:ation helped to unify our ranks and give 
js a common cause to pursue together, 
t wasn't an easy task; hours of work and 
:otal dedication from all areas of the Uni- 
versity, community, state, and natron went 
nto the project. The new spirit generated 
py the Century Fund Drive was for many 
he memorable part of this year's Alumni 
,Day. 

The spirit was also significant in the size 
pf the reunion classes. This year's 50th 
,?eunion Class, 1922, was the largest 50- 
/ear reunion class to ever return to the 
:ampus. Seventeen members of that class 
eturned to share golden memories with 
heir classmates and friends. 

•EKI2I 

Homecoming may seem to be a long 
vay off, but it's really upon us. October 
!8 the Colonels clash with Murray at the 
innual game. This year two reunion 
:lasses — 5 and 10 — will be recognized, 
"he 1962 and 1967 classes will be seated 
n special sections at the game and they 
vill be able to renew acquaintances at 
Planned luncheons at noon. The usual 
jarade, queen coronation, etc. will add to 
■heir return. 

€Kl2f 

It's that time of year again . . . we send 
1 contribution letter to you and hope that 
ou will help support your alumni associa- 
ion. Each year it seems we get more com- 
)lex and like everything else, we need to 
^ncrease our budget. We hope that when 
ou're deciding on priorities you'll re- 
nember Eastern and support the EKU 
.\lumni Association by contributing to its 
irograms. There is no set amount that we 
efer to as dues ... we realize that a small 
ontribution may be as great a sacrifice for 
ome as a much larger amount would be 
or the more affluent. So, we will leave 
he amount up to you and what you feel 
ou can give. 

I HEKlil 

I Fall is upon us and that means 'ACTION' 
vith the Colonel footballers and basket- 
lallers. Why not spend Saturday after- 
loons with the Colonels at Hanger Field? 
iesides the Murray Homecoming Came, 
here will be encounters with Morehead, 
ast Tennessee, Middle Tennessee, and In- 
liana State. Also, the basketball Colonels 
iiill be taking on NCAA runner-up, Florida 
tate, in Freedom Hall in December. So, 
k-rite the Athletic Ticket Office, Eastern 
Kentucky University, Richmond, Ky. 40475, 
or information and tickets. 




President Nixon congratulates Karl D. Bays, '55, after the chief executive had appointed

tive officer of the American Hospital Supply Corporation, will serve with twenty other mem- 
bers from all areas of public life.

Some Alumni Chapters are still getting 
together to continue their interest in 
Eastern. The Louisville-lefferson County 
Chapter met at the Pleasure Ridge Park 
Vocational School in February. Jim Floyd 
presided and Dr. William Sexton, Dean of 
EKU's College of Arts and Technology was 
the speaker. Paul Taylor was elected presi- 
dent and Ronald Sherrard president-elect. 

The Tri-State Ashland Chapter sponsored 
a hospitality room at the Henry Clay Hotel 
for alumni in the area who were attending 
the Shrine Bowl game between Eastern and 
Northern Iowa. Hosts for the hospitality 
hour were Robert Hayes, Webb Young, 
Robert Coburn, Dr. John Hughes, Dr. 
Willis Potter, Gordon Caldwell, and Glenn 
Riedel. 

The Tri-State Chapter elected Glenn 
Riedel president at the annual EKEA din- 
ner. 

The Greater Cincinnati Chapter met in 
April at the Riverfront Holiday Inn in Cov- 
ington. Don Daley presided and John Sulli- 
van of Eastern's WEKU radio station was 
the speaker. Wendell Cook was elected 
president while Mary )ane Giltner was ap- 
pointed secretary and Bill Dosch replaced 
Tom Romard as treasurer. 

The Perry County Chapter met twice 
during the past year. Dr. Charles Ross, 
former EKU Ombudsman, was speaker at 
the first meeting in December while Herb 
Vescio and Ron Wolfe from the office of 
financial assistance and alumni affairs re- 



spectively, spoke at the May meeting. Of- 
ficers for the coming year are Mrs. Martha 
Ogrosky, president; Mrs. Helen Hall, vice- 
president, and Mrs. W. S. Napier, secretary. 

€KI2: 



The response to our recruiting issue has 
been excellent. Several alumni have joined 
in the "Each One Recruit One," campaign 
and the University-School Relations Office 
has been following up on the requests from 
alumni and students who have been re- 
ferred to their office by the alumni am- 
bassadors. The best public relations a 
University can have comes from good 
alumni who help establish the University's 
reputation by the way they do their jobs 
and perform in their communities. A tip 
of the old beanie to you who have proven 
yourselves loyal, upstanding alumni. 



€Kl2l 



It seems that every issue of the maga- 
zine or newsletter carries an item about 
Karl D. Bays, '55, who is now president 
and chief executive officer of the American 
Hospital Supply Corporation. To add to 
his numerous other honors. President 
Nixon has appointed Bays to the Commit- 
tee on Health Services Industry, an Advi- 
sory Panel to the President's Cost of Liv- 
ing Council, Price Commission, and Pay 
Board. 

Karl was the speaker for this year's 
Alumni Day Banquet. (See pages 10-11).

OFFICIAL MAGAZINE OF THE 
EASTERN KENTUCKY UNIVERSITY ALUMNI ASSOCIATION 



Alumnus Editorial 



The Public Speaks 



There are events, from time 
to time, that (at the risk of 
sounding trite) restore your 
faith in your fellow man. 

Just as you have become 
convinced that apathy prevails 
something will arouse public 
sentiment to reaffirm the fact 
that the public does, indeed, 
care. 

One sure-fire way to elicit 
a speedy display of indignant 
outrage from the populace is 
to make it appear that some 
individual or organization is 
about to suffer unjustly so that 
another can be made to bene- 
fit. 

This is exactly what hap- 
pened with a consultant's re- 
port to the Kentucky Crime 
Commission appeared to 
threaten the plans to locate a 
Law Enforcement-Traffic Safety 
Center at Eastern Kentucky 
University and could have con- 
ceivably imperiled the very fu- 
ture of law enforcement edu- 
cation at this institution. 



Perhaps the recommenda- 
tions of this report, tendered 
in late summer, would not 
have had these detrimental 
results. The important thing, 
however, is that the people of 
Kentucky thought that Eastern 
Kentucky University, the state's 
pioneer in law enforcement 
education, was going to have 
its highly successful program 
fragmented and dealt piece- 
meal throughout the state. 
Eastern, they thought, was in 
danger of being removed from 
a position of prominence and 
relegated to a lesser role. 

The deluge of letters to edi- 
tors, organizational resolutions 
and proclamations, and public 
opinion polls quickly left little 
doubt about public sentiment 
in the matter. Most indicative, 
perhaps, was the Lexington 
Herald's poll in which less than 
two percent of the respondents 
favored a reduction of East- 
ern's roll in law enforcement. 
One individual replying to the 
poll called any attempt to frag- 



ment EKU's programs "aca- 
demic larceny." 

What appeared to be a 
threat had produced enough 
response that it may well have 
proved an expediter. Progress 
toward construction of the 
Law Enforcement-Traffic Safety 
Center had been moving at a 
normal pace. With the atten- 
tion of Kentucky's people cen- 
tered on the issue, approval of 
the project by the Board of 
Regents and the Council on 
Public Higher Education, and 
ground breaking, came in a 
head-spinning, rapid succes- 
sion of events, each separated 
by only one week. Soon after 
ground was broken the state 
finance office approved adver- 
tising revenue bonds for bids 
to finance the structure. 

Despite all of the concern 
over dangers, real or imagined, 
the recent controversy was, 
because of the fact that it re- 
emphasized the existence of a 
sensitive public, gratifying. 




Winter, 1972 



Notes . . . From The Editor's Desk 



THIS SHOULD BE a particularly inter- 
esting issue of the Alumnus to our 
readers. Spotlighted by feature articles 
are four of the most dynamic academic 
programs or areas on the campus. They 
are among the areas in which Eastern 
Kentucky University, as a regional in- 
stitution, is providing educational op- 
portunities of significant importance to 
both her service area and the nation. 

EKU has become a national leader 
in law enforcement, and the article be- 
ginning on page 8 traces the historical 
and academic development of this 
phase of the academic structure. Spe- 
cial education, housed in the new 
William L. Wallace Building, is one of 
the truly rapidly developing programs 
on campus, as is the entire area of 
allied health programs, both covered 
in this issue. And, there is a feature 
on ROTC reporting how this year East- 
ern became one of only 10 schools in 
the nation offering army ROTC for 
women, and one of only two with a 
military science branch program. 

— EKU — 



THE SAD DUTY of reporting deaths 
seems to have fallen on this section of 
the Alumnus, and the task is a much 
heavier one than usual this issue. 

One of the most tragic times in the 
institution's history came early in the 
morning of November 18 when a plane 
carrying 10 Richmond men from a high 
school football game in Hopkinsville 
crashed in Todd County killing all 11 
aboard, including the pilot. Eight were 
former Eastern students or graduates. 
They were Ben Robinson, Jr., Charles 
Shackelford, Roy R. Watson, Jr., George 
Vernon, Hugh Robbins, David Coosiin, 
J. D. Frankenberger, and Jimmy House. 
Joe Hunter and Maurice Munday, who 
also died in the crash, were also well- 
known to the EKU community. 

We were also saddened by the pass- 



ing of two great leaders and developers 
of Eastern. 

Dr. Jonathan Truman Dorris died at 
age 89 on November 26, and Ernst V. 
Johnson, 61, passed away December 1. 

Dr. Dorris, a long-time member of 
the Department of History, was a noted 
author and an instrumental force in the 
development of Fort Boonesborough 
State Park. Perhaps his most signifi- 
cant work was "Pardon and Amnesty 
Under Lincoln and Johnson," but his 
"Old Cane Springs," a local history and 
"Five Decades of Progress," a history 
of Eastern through 1956-57, gained him 
local fame. He was the founder of 
the J. T. Dorris Museum which is 
housed in the John Grant Crabbe Li- 
brary. 

Johnson was the senior partner in 
the Lexington architectural firm of 
Johnson-Romanowitz. He was the de- 
signer of some 13 major structures on 
the EKU campus including all men's 
residence halls built since, and includ- 
ing, Keith Hall, the Powell Building, 
the Jones Building, and most signifi- 
cantly for Alumni, the Chapel of Medi- 
tation. He was a member of the Cen- 
tury Club. 

We mourn the passing of all these 
men and extend our sincere sympathy 
to their families. 

— EKU — 



IT WAS WITH a great deal of pride and 
interest that we attended the recent 
(November 12-15) meeting of the 
American Association of State Colleges 
and Universities in Washington, D. C. 

President Martin attended as the 
association's outgoing president, and 
was paid tribute by AASCU past 
president Dr. Darrell Holmes. A brief 
news account of the meeting appears 



on page 44. The following is the t 
of Dr. Holmes' tribute to Dr. Marl 



"Robert Martin is a man of action, e 
IS a doer. He gets things done. 



As the sixth president of Eastern K 
tucky University in a twelve-year peri 
he guided the destiny of that great ij 
distinguished institution to the end 1 1 
it tripled Its enrollment to its present SB 
of 10,500 students and multiplied p 
grams six fold. 

Similarly, President Martin's enthusia: 
knowledge and skill as an admlnlstrar 
and his warm personal attributes h. 
served this association with great disti 
tlon. 

His adept and skillfull handling of me- 
Ings, his ability to delegate, his understai 
of people — of the human processes — h; 
brought the Association this year to a n 
level of accomplishment and maturity. i|t 
only are we the largest ever — In his im 
— but we also have seen the fruition |f 
a comprehensive and highly effective p 
gram designed to Impact national legls 
tlve policy. 

Robert Martin, personally, as preside 
and prior to that as chairman of the As* 
clation's Legislative Committee, has te;,- 
fied before the Congress in behalf of Ecj- 
catlonal policy. The Higher Education I 
of this session was mightily influenced 
this man, his thinking, and his strategies. 

The Association's comprehensive set 
programs underway in fields such as, I: 
not limited to. International studies, urb 
affairs, cultural affairs, affirmative acti 
. . . yes, this very meeting and its to 
impact attest to the quality of the man. 

Bob Is a man who Is sensitive to othe 
His homespun humor, folksy ways, ai 
Scatter-good-Balne's approach to peof 
have endeared him to all.

cated this past May 13. These cam- 
pus landmarks were welcoming 
their first homecomers. 

Reunion luncheons were the or- 
der of the day for the 1962 and 1967 
classes who got together to marvel 
at the changes that had taken place 
on campus since they had left only 
five and ten 'short' years ago. And, 
many came away wondering how 
'cafeteria' food could taste so good. 

Although the inclement weather 
had forced the postponement of a 
scheduled parachute jump into the 
front lawn of the Begley Drug Com- 
pany just across from the stadium, 
the pre-game ceremonies went on 
as usual. Miss Teresa Wilson, a

Queen. The Covington Cup, given 
in honor of Marie by Mr. Earle 
Jones, '71, was presented to Dr. 
Robert R. Martin, EKU president, by 
Dr. Billy Wells, president of the 
Eastern Alumni Association. 

During all this activity, university 
officials were honoring three re- 
tired educators — Thomas E. Mc- 
Donough, Gertrude Hood, and 
Charles T. Hughes by unveiling 
plaques at three athletic fields 
named in their honor. 

And there was the game. The 
injury-riddled Colonels lost to Mur-

foil the fun.

But the weekend continued as 
fraternities, sororities, and other 
campus groups welcomed alums at 
post-game get-togethers. 

And then, exactly like last year, 
the sun came out Sunday morning 
on a beautiful day. But unlike last 
year, the weekend ceremonies con- 
tinued as three portraits of retired 
faculty members were unveiled in 
the University Center. Portraits of 
Dr. D. T. Ferrell, Dr. R. E. Jaggers, 
and Dr. Thomas Herndon were un- 
veiled during ceremonies in the 
Jaggers Room prior to a reception 
in the Herndon Lounge honoring 
the three. It was a dignified end to 
another Homecoming. Old man 
weather had tried, but except for the 
parachutists, he had failed. 

Homecoming '72 slipped into his- 
tory. For many, it must have seemed 
much like the homecomings of pre- 
vious years. For others like the

In some ways, it did that for

From an academic

students in 1966, the

It was an unusually 

pleasant day for Kentucky at 
mid-winter, that afternoon 
in January, 1966, when 47 
students assembled in Room 
12 of the Gibson Building for 
a unique experience. 

It was a different type of 
experience for Eastern Ken- 
tucky University, too, because, 
while Saturday and evening 
classes for adults had long 
been an important part of 
the class offering, these adult

*\ . . all the rapid development in law enforcement 
has taken place without the School of Law 
Enforcement and the Traffic Safety Institute 
having academic homes of their own '* 




Everything about that class 
smacked of an academic program 
just getting its feet off the ground. 
The students were periodically 
jolted from concentration by the 
blasts, from only 20 feet away, of 
the heating plant's whistle — the 
same whistle that later in the month 
would signal the General Assem- 
bly's approval of university status 
for Eastern (and Western, Murray 
and Morehead). 

The instructor was a crew-cut 
man of medium build who looked 
like he had come straight from the 



Kentucky State Police Academy. He 
had. Robert Posey, director of the 
Academy at Frankfort, had driven 
the 50 miles to Richmond to begin 
his career in college teaching, 
though only for one course, and as 
a part-time instructor. 

The students were paying their 
own fees in this course and came 
without financial aid. It was well 
before the Omnibus Crime Control 
Safe Streets Act of 1968. 

At the time, it was the only col- 
lege-level law enforcement course 
in the Eastern United States be-

tween Michigan and Florida, and the| 
times could not have been consid-| 
ered ideal for the beginning of 
such a program. The temperature 
on most college campuses and in 
America's cities was rising and re- 
bellion and revolt were becoming 
commonplace. The war in Vietnam 
was being escalated, social griev- 
ances were being dramatized by

construction. 



violence, and "credibility gap" was 
becoming a catch-word as distrust 
of established authority grew. 

So, without fanfare, but with me- 
ticulous planning and the kind of 
foresight that was to result in uni- 
versity status for Eastern, a program 
in law enforcement education was 
begun. 

From this inauspicious beginning 
has sprung a leap-and-bound devel- 
opment boasting a success story 
touched with adversity and high 
drama of which Horatio Alger would 
have been proud. 

This fall the EKU School of Law 
Enforcement recorded 2,346 class 
enrollments and 1,433 major stu- 
dents in its range of associate of 
arts, bachelor's and master's degree 
programs. And, Robert Posey, who, 
in 1966, was the only person in 
Kentucky with a graduate degree in 
, police administration, is dean of a 
. School preparing a wide range of 
I personnel including college level 
' teachers of law enforcement. 
' But, despite this dramatic growth 
in enrollment and program, law 
enforcement education at Eastern 
took the largest of many giant 
steps October 18 when Governor 
Wendell Ford broke ground for a 
' new, $6.5 million center to serve the 
I School of Law Enforcement, the 
Traffic Safety Institute and the Ken- 
I tucky Law Enforcement Council, an 
EKU-based state agency. 

Posey and Leslie Leach, Director 
of the Traffic Safety Institute, look 

'WINTER, 1972 



longingly toward the day when the 
center will be completed. For all 
the rapid development in law en- 
forcement education has taken 
place without the School of Law En- 
forcement and the Traffic Safety In- 
stitute having academic homes of 
their own. 

First they were housed in Fitz- 
patrick and Gibson with industrial 
education, industrial technology and 
part of the agricultural program. 
Then they were moved to the Bur- 
rier Building, shared with nursing 
and home economics. Now, they 
are located on one floor of the Rob- 
ert B. Begley Building in space that 
the School of Health, Physical Edu- 
cation, Recreation and Athletics 
needs for its blossoming programs. 

The ground breaking for the Law 
Enforcement-Traffic Safety Center 
was on schedule despite a series of 
misunderstandings and a consult- 
ant's report to the Kentucky Crime 
Commission that could seemingly 
have delayed its completion, or in 
fact, threatened the very future of 
law enforcement education at East- 
ern Kentucky University. 

It is a story that tells best from 
the beginning. 

The middle years of the 1960's 
saw public attention focus on crime 
and law enforcement. The assassi- 
nation of President Kennedy drama- 
tized the potential for violence in 
American streets. Riots and a gen- 
eral upswing in the crime rate were 
facts of which everyone was aware. 



And, as it still continues to do, the 
death toll on the nation's highways 
was climbing annually. 

Meanwhile, I a w enforcement 
agencies were caught in a multi- 
fareted dilemma. The image of the 
police officer was losing stature in 
the public mind, there was a need 
for professional education to pre- 
pare officers to face growing prob- 
lems, and, as a rule, police salaries 
in most states were not high enough 
to attract and retain qualified per- 
sons. 

It was against this backdrop, in 
August of 1965, that the sequence 
of events leading to Eastern's School 
of Law Enforcement was set in mo- 
tion. 

The initial step came when Ken- 
tucky State Police officials made 
contact with Dr. Charles Ambrose, 
dean of admissions. "Would," they 
ask, "Eastern consider a request?" 

They were soon meeting in 
President Robert R. Martin's office. 
Attending were Dr. Martin, Dr. Am- 
brose, acting academic dean Dr. 
Smith Park, and Dr. John Rowlett, 
dean of the college of applied arts 
and technology, who had been 
called from his summer vacation 
and his vegetable garden to sit in 
on the session. They heard Colonel 
Ted Bassett, director of the Ken- 
tucky State Police, his deputy, Lt. 
Colonel William O. Newman, the 
current Commissioner of Public 
Safety, and Posey request that the 
administration consider the estab-

A Career-Ladder Degree Concept 



lishment of college level law en- 
forcement programs. Their immedi- 
ate concern was the upgrading of 
existing state police personnel, but 
they emphasized the long-range 
goal of increasing educational op- 
portunities for all in-service officers 
and development of a program for 
students planning careers in law en- 
forcement. 

A recently prepared status report 
on law enforcement education at 
EKU summarized the initial intent. 
"The emphasis was to be one of 
assisting law enforcement person- 
nel, through education, to achieve 
professional status. It was the feel- 
ing that, in time, legislative bodies 
at the city, county, and state levels 
would reward better education and 
better trained policemen with im- 
proved salary conditions. This was 
a very reasonable assumption since 
it is a course that has been re- 
peated, over the years, in numerous 
professional fields. 

"The last legislature, with the 
strong support of Governor Ford, 
passed a police pay incentive bill 
which provides for a salary supple- 
ment of up to 15 percent for those 
policemen who complete a mini- 
mum of forty hours of in-service 
training per year." 

During late summer and the fall 
of 1965, Dr. Rowiett, the current 
acting academic vice president and 
Vice President for Research and De- 
velopment who then headed the 
College of Applied Art and Tech- 
nology, was in constant touch with 



12 



police agencies, consultants and 
EKU faculty in developing associate 
and baccalaureate degree programs. 

The decisions made then have 
been basic to the development of 
law enforcement at Eastern. It was 
decided to use law enforcement in 
a generic sense and include in its 
scope programs for police, correc- 
tions, juvenile and other types of 
law enforcement personnel. The 
program was initiated as a depart- 
ment, later as a school, rather than 
dilute it by attaching it to an exist- 
ing department. 

An effort was made to develop 
broad-based curricula and attract 
faculty with experience in law en- 
forcement who also possessed ap- 
propriate academic backgrounds. 

A career-ladder concept, enabling 
students to step from associate-to- 
baccalaureate-to-master's with com- 
plete transferability of coursework 
was implemented. And, it was de- 
cided to place the initial focus on 
the in-service educational needs of 
policemen, keeping in mind that an 
enrollment of students preparing 
for law enforcement careers would 
also develop. 

Eastern's proposal for degree pro- 
grams in law enforcement went be- 
fore the Kentucky Council on Public 
Higher Education and received the 
body's approval December 6, 1965. 
The next month that historic first 
class met and Eastern's role in law 
enforcement education was on its 
skyrocketing way. 

The developments were signifi- 



cant and came in rapid-fire order 
as: 

• Robert Posey became director of 
the School of Law Enforcement June 
1, 1966. 

• The Office of Law Enforcement 
Assistance, U. S. Department of Jus- 
tice, awarded Eastern the first grant 
in the nation for the purpose of de- 
veloping a college level law en- 
forcement program June 15, 1966. 
It should be noted that EKU's com- 
mitment to law enforcement educa- 
tion came before massive federal 
aid became available. 

• The Office of Law Enforcement 
Assistance September 1, 1966, 
awarded Eastern the first grant in 
the nation to establish a minimumi 
state-wide standards and training' 
council for policemen. From this 
grant developed the Kentucky Law 
Enforcement Council. 

• In October, 1966, the Board ofj 
Regents established the Traffic Safe-| 
ty Institute as a department in the 
College of Applied Arts and Tech- 
nology. The institute has been re- 
sponsible for the state-wide pro- 
gram of Breathalyzer operator train- 
ing and through September, 1972, 
had instructed 1,297 in the device's 
use. 

• Eastern received an Office of Law 
Enforcement Assistance grant in 
September, 1967, for a two-year in- 
service training program for Ken- 
tucky corrections and probation and 
parole personnel. This was ex- 
panded by an additional grant to a 
regional responsibility for the states

of Kentucky, West Virginia and Ten-

• The U. S. Office of Education 
made an award to Eastern, March 
13, 1970 to provide fellowships to 
prepare college teachers of law en- 
forcement. Successive awards have 
provided $177,644 to support 37 
fellowships. And, EKU is the only 
institution receiving federal funds 
for this purpose. 

• And, perhaps the most significant 
of all, Eastern was the first institu- 
tion to receive federal funds to plan 
a Law Enforcement-Traffic Safety 
Center, receiving a $96,000 grant for 
final plans from the LEAA in Janu- 
ary, 1972. 

Since 1966, Eastern has received 
some 34 federally-funded grants 
totaling $1,787,897 in support of its 
law enforcement program. How- 
ever, Dr. Rowlett is quick to point 
out that "The University has been 
very careful in the development of 
its programs not to become de- 
pendent upon federal funds." 

In addition, the Traffic Safety In- 
stitute has received 13 grants total- 
ing $635,418. 

The academic development of the 
School of Law Enforcement has 
been dramatic, as well. From that 
original, single course the offering 
has expanded to include 41 separate 
course descriptions. Instead of one 
part-time instructor, the School 
boasts a full-time faculty of 14, in-

eluding four with the earned doc- 
torate and two completing final re- 
quirements for the Ph.D. 

Degree programs have been de- 
veloped to meet local, state and na- 
tional needs. Two-year associate of 
arts, four-year baccalaureate, and 
master's level curricula form the 
"career ladder" concept of advance- 
ment in law enforcement education. 

The associate of arts is offered in 
four areas — general law enforce- 
ment, corrections, juvenile and in- 
dustrial security. The law enforce- 
ment corrections concentrations are 
offered at the baccalaureate level. 
The master of science in criminal 
justice is offered in four areas of 
specialization — criminal justice edu- 
cation, law enforcement and police 
administration, criminology and cor- 
rections, and juvenile delinquency. 
[ Since its inception the Traffic 
Safety Institute's activities have in- 
creased rapidly. Only 10 students 
were enrolled in the driver educa- 
tion teacher preparation program in 
1967, while more than 100 regis- 
tered this year. The TSI has assisted 
some 75 high schools in initiating 
driver and traffic safety programs. 

The public service function of the 
Institute has been broad, indeed, 
safety films, television and radio 
ipots, regional conferences and an 
ilcohol re-education program have 
3een a few of the projects under- 
laken by Leach's department. 

The research role of the Institute 



has included the compilation of the 
statistics basic to the Highway Safety 
Act and compilation of Kentucky's 
comprehensive plan for highway 
safety. 

This was the history of the School 
of Law Enforcement and of the 
Traffic Safety Institute as the 1972- 
73 academic year began. The en- 
rollment had gone from 47 to 1,433 
majors, the faculty from one part- 
time member to 14 full-time. The 
School had just graduated a record 
99 candidates including 24 master's 
recipients. 

Posey and his faculty were point- 
ing with pride to the responsible 
positions their graduates were fill- 
ing, posts such as: Chief of Police, 
Gainesville, Fla., Postal Inspector, 
Director of the Criminal Justice 
Program, North Carolina Central 
University, instructors at the Uni- 
versity of Texas, Florida Atlantic 
University, Weber State, directors of 
law enforcement programs at sev- 
eral four-year and community col- 
leges, and many positions of in- 
service police leadership. 

And, everyone associated with 
the programs in law enforcement 
education at EKU was looking for- 
ward to breaking ground for the 
Law Enforcement-Traffic Safety Cen- 
ter. 

The 1972 Kentucky General As- 
sembly had added another step to 
the process of building on Kentucky 
campuses when it passed legislation 



requiring construction projects of 
more than $100,000 be approved by 
a reorganized Council on Public 
Higher Education. Some individuals 
viewed this extra procedure as a 
possible delay, but not as a serious 
threat to the future of the center. 

A real challenge was presented, 
however, when a consultant's report 
to the Kentucky Crime Commission 
was released in September. Inter- 
pretations of the possible impact of 
the reports' recommendations on 
the Eastern law enforcement pro- 
gram were varied. 

At worst, the report seemed to 
recommend the fragmentation of 
EKU's efforts into four regional 
"alliances," the establishment of the 
University of Louisville and the Uni- 
versity of Kentucky as centers for 
law enforcement, and the construc- 
tion of a law enforcement complex 
in Jefferson County. The report was 
also critical of Eastern's program of 
law enforcement ext 5ion courses, 
questioning the qu ty of some 
course locations. The fact is that 
when courses were first organized 
in 1966 the locations were not ideal, 
but were the best available. Many 
of the current courses are taught in 
local schools, on the campuses of 
state community colleges, and one 
is located at Western Kentucky 
University. 

Other interpreters of the report 
said that it recommended nothing 
that would threaten the future de-

velopment of EKU law entorcement 
education or the construction of the 
Law Enforcement-Traffic Safety Cen- 
ter. The report, they said, only sug- 
gested that U of L and UK be the 
sites of future doctoral-level pro- 
grams in the social professions. East- 
ern is the only institution in the 
Commonwealth offering graduate 
work in law enforcement. 

On the heels of the report came a 
groundswell of support for Eastern 
law enforcement education. Edi- 
torials appeared in the Richmond 
Daily Register, the Lexington Herald, 
the Lexington Leader, the Courier- 
Journal and the Madison County 
Newsweek questioning the possible 
curtailment of Eastern's role in law 
enforcement education. Radio Sta- 
tion WEKY, in a rare editorial com- 
ment, echoed the sentiments. A 
public opinion poll in the Lexington 
Herald showed only 1.8 percent of 
respondents favoring a reduction of 
Eastern's role. 

Resolutions and letters of support 
came from the Kentucky Peace Of- 
ficers Association, the Kentucky 
State Coroners Association, the 
Richmond City Commission and the 
Madison County Bar Association. 
Civic organizations including the 
Chamber of Commerce, the Junior 
Chamber of Commerce, Richmond's 
Rotary, Civitan, and Exchange clubs 
supported EKU as did the Eastern 
Student Association, and Lambda 
Alpha Epsilon, Alpha Phi Sigma and 



the Association of Law Enforcement, 
all three organizations of law en- 
forcement students. 

When the Council on Public 
Higher Education approved the con- 
struction project the Lexington 
Herald applauded the decision to 
sustain EKU's leadership. 

When support rallied behind the 
EKU program, momentum toward 
the ground breaking mounted in 
one-two-three order. The Board of 
Regents met Wednesday, Oct. 4, 
and gave its approval to the pro- 
posal for construction of the cen- 
ter. One week later, the Council 
on Public Higher Education gave its 
unanimous sanction to the project, 
and a week from that day Governor 
Ford turned the first spade of earth 
at the construction site. 

The ground breaking, held under 
threatening skies on a cold, blustery 
morning, sparked with a gala note 
that overshadowed the weather's 
gloom. More than 500 persons 
braved the ominous elements to 
hear Governor Ford talk of the 
event's significance. 

"We do not just break ground 
today for a structure. We break 
ground in tribute to an idea; we 
break ground in the hope of achiev- 
ing a more secure society," the 
Governor said. 

"What is said here today will be 
insignificant in comparison to what 
will be accomplished here tomor- 
row. 



"Naturally, I use the word tomol 
row in describing a future date," H 
said. "A date when Kentucky ar 
other parts of this nation real!: 
the wisdom of a purpose. 

"That purpose has been give 
sanction by the Board of Regents i 
this University, and the Council c 
Public Higher Education. It was 
just and proper decision by ind 
viduals who foresee tomorrow' 
need in a critical endeavor — the ac 
vanced application of law enforce 
ment." 

He spoke of the approval by th 
EKU Regents and of approval by t^ 
Council on Public Higher Educatio 
the proposals to construct the La- 
Enforcement-Traffic Safety CenterJ 

Governor Ford praised EKU Pres 
dent Robert R. Martin, who preside' 
at the ceremonies. "As a publi' 
figure, you are destined to an uiti 
mate analysis, in large part, to thi 
status of this institution as a whole,! 
said the Governor to Dr. Martin. I 

"We can only predict the fin.i 
outcome, which in my opinion wi 
enthusiastically applaud your lead 
ership and devotion. Yet this oc| 
casion, just as in years past whe 
you were willing to be innovativ 
toward law enforcement educatior 
promises a special passage in tha' 
recording of undeniable praise. 

"The contribution already madi 
in law enforcement education a 
Eastern merits consideration," Gov 
ernor Ford continued. "Thirteei

percent of the total enrollment at 
this University major in the program 
now to be advanced. 

"There is visible evidence of the 
program's posture, not only in Ken- 
tucky, but throughout the United 
States . . . Eastern Kentucky Univer- 
sity should be commended for inte- 
grating it into the overall academic 
program. It can't help but get 
stronger." 

Following his address the Gover- 
nor joined EKU regents, Dr. Martin, 
legislators, law enforcement offi- 
cials, and other Kentucky, Richmond 
and Madison County officials in the 
breaking of ground for the 40-acre 
I facility. 

I After the ground breaking, Cover- 
inor Ford and Dr. Martin ceremoni- 
iously cut a cake baked in the shape 
lof the Commonwealth of Kentucky. 
j The facility has been in the plan- 
Ining stage for three years and will 
'be constructed in four levels con- 
itaining 133,298 square feet of floor 
space. 

; The first level will house me- 
chanical equipment and an indoor 
■pistol range. Classrooms, special- 
lized laboratories, offices, an audi- 
torium, training tank and education- 
al support areas are provided at 
Dther levels. 

Part of the site will be devoted to 
1 training lake for law enforcement 
|Jnd water safety instruction. A 
Inotor vehicle driving range will 
';erve both law enforcement and 
raffic safety programs. 

WINTER, 1972 



Governor Ford was welcomed in 
his first official visit to the Eastern 
campus by Dr. Martin, a special 
ROTC honor guard which included 
military police and coed cadets, and 
by the 150-piece EKU Marching Ma- 
roons Band. 

Recognized during the program 
were individuals, news media, and 
representatives of law enforcement 
agencies and civic and student or- 
ganizations who had been support- 
ers of Eastern's program in law en- 
forcement education. 

Ground breaking was not the last 
of the pre-construction steps for the 
facility. Final approval of the archi- 
tects' plans had to come from the 
Department of Finance at Frankfort 
and bids for construction had to be 
taken. 

And, as in all major construction 
projects, the completion date isn't 
just around the corner. With an 
estimated building time of two 
years, the University hopes to have 
the Law Enforcement-Traffic Safety 
Center finished by January 1, 1975. 

Individuals who have been in- 
strumental in Eastern's rapidly de- 
veloping program in law enforce- 
ment education talk in glowing 
terms of what the center will mean 
for its future. 

"The Law Enforcement-Traffic 
Safety Center will be a model fa- 
cility," President Martin says. "With 
its completion, our School of Law 
Enforcement, the Traffic Safety In- 
stitute and the Kentucky Law En- 



Academic leaders in Eastern's program of 
law enforcement education stand on the 
site where the Law Enforcement-Traffic 
Safety Center will be constructed. The 
water safety training lake will fill the hol- 
low directly behind the men, while the 
main building and the driving range will be 
to the right and left, respectively. They 
are, from left: Dr. Jack Luy, associate dean 
of the College of Applied Arts and Tech- 
nology; Dr. William Sexton, dean of the 
College of Applied Arts and Technology; 
Robert Stone, director of the Kentucky 
Law Enforcement Council; Robert Posey, 
dean of the School of Law Enforcement, 
and Leslie Leach, director of the Traffic 
Safety Institute. 

forcement Council will have the 
specialized facilities their unique 
programs require." 

Dr. Martin considers the go-ahead 
on the project one of the most im- 
portant developments during his 
12-year tenure. "Law enforcement 
is a relatively unexplored area in 
higher education. One of this Uni- 
versity's primary sources of state- 
wide and national recognition and 
service can be our law enforcement 
education programs." 

Posey, Leach, Rowlett and Dr. 
William Sexton, Dean of the College 
of Applied Arts and Technology, 
view the completion of the center 
as a date that will bring much wider 
educational opportunities to the law 
enforcement and traffic safety pro- 
grams. 

They all cite the specialized labo- 
ratories, water safety facilities and 
the driving range with its multiplic- 
ity of uses as having a potential of 
tremendous impact on future de- 
velopment of their programs. 

So, the Eastern Kentucky Univer- 
sity School of Law Enforcement and 
the Traffic Safety Institute stands 
today much like a spreading oak. 
It has grown substantially since it 
began as an acorn of an idea in 
1965. 

Its development is mindful of a 
Victor Hugo quotation that Presi- 
dent Martin often uses to illustrate 
a point. "Nothing in the world is 
as powerful as an idea whose time 
has come."

THE EASTERN KENTUCKY UNIVERSITY ALUMNUS 



SPECIAL 
EDUCATION 

... for the child who deserves 

no less than his 'average' peers . . . 

BY RON G. WOLFE 
Assistant Director of Alumni Affairs 

rOr many years public schools concerned them- 
selves only with those students who had the ability 
and the patience to cope with many general unde- 
fined programs. 

Students in need of special education were 
either left home to become sources of embarrass- 
ment for their families, socially passed each year to 
eventually become sources of embarrassment for 
the schools, or tolerated into boredom as a result 
of a curriculum or teacher that could not challenge 
their potential genius. 

But, healthy changes are taking place as evi- 
denced in Eastern's department of special educa- 
tion, a creation which reflects concern for the 
special child who deserves no less than his "av- 
erage" peers. 

When the College of Education was reorganized 
in September 1969, Eastern's new Special Education 
Department was expanded from the already exist- 
ant speech pathology program. 

Its creation came at the end of a decade which 
saw unparalleled changes take place within the en- 
tire structure of Eastern Kentucky University. As Dr. 
John Rowiett, Vice President for Research and 
Development, pointed out in his address to the 
faculty in the fall of 1969, "For every major facility 
that has been constructed in the 60's, we have built 
a dozen major programs, programs that are briefly 
described in a small book that measures six inches 
by nine inches by one inch thick which we call our 
university catalog. These programs represent our 
responses and our commitments . . . we could have 
been insensitive to the demands for special educa- 
tion teachers, but we were not." 

VINTER, 1972 19

Exceptional Children Get Their Chance 



That fall 56 students enrolled in 
special education and when the 
spring semester rolled around, the 
number had doubled — 112. Enroll- 
ment continued to increase as 440 
entered the various programs last 
year. Last summer 507 enrolled, 
the largest number of any institution 
in Kentucky. That total was over 
700 when the fall semester began 
this year. 

But, besides mushrooming enroll- 
ment, there are other signs of 
growth. Last year, the department 
received a $14,000 WHAS Scholar- 
ship from the Crusade for Children. 
This sum provided some 41 scholar- 
ships for the summer alone. This 
year's grant is $18,000. (See Chron- 
icle page 34.) 

The federal government provided 
money for 73 summer traineeships 
from Kentucky. Sixteen recipients 
of these awards selected Eastern, the 
largest number from any single in- 
stitution in 1971. The number rose 
to 22 in 1972. 

The new EKU program was also 
one of the 19 in the United States 
which was approved for a $15,000 
Block Grant in Mental Retardation. 
This federal grant is a flexible 
amount which may be used in all 
areas of the special education pro- 
gram such as faculty and equip- 
ment. Last year Eastern used these 
funds to hire one new faculty mem- 
ber and give sixteen $150 under- 
graduate scholarships. This year, 
the amount of the grant was raised 
to $25,000. 

The local community has also lent 
support to the program as the 
Richmond Woman's Club now gives 
a $100 scholarship each semester to 
a Madison County student in spe- 
cial education. 

Dr. Wietse de Hoop, chairman of 
the department, is enthusiastic 
about the present as well as the fu- 
ture. "We deal with children that 
elementary and secondary teachers 
cannot very well take care of within 
their own particular programs," he 
said. 

"These scholarships and grants 




Dr. Wietse de Hoop, (above) chairman of 
ttie Department of Special Education, had 
directed the program to its present success 
with the help of students, administration, 
and fellow faculty like Dr. Barbara Stock 
(right) a new member who joined the Spe- 
cial Ed faculty this year. 



reflect the quality of our program," 
he continued, "but there are other 
evidences that we are meeting im- 
portant needs. 

"Right now we are cooperating 
with the Bluegrass Mental Health- 
Mental Retardation Board in main- 
taining two classes for special stu- 
dents in the Wallace Building, the 
newest classroom facility. Since 
we've moved into our new build- 
ing, we've been trying to expand 
our services to the University as a 
whole. We hope to be able to 
screen the hearing and speech of 
those within the University who 
might be involved with education, 
and we may even screen potential 
teachers in hearing and speech be- 
fore they advance into the teacher 
education programs," he said. 

"And we've left an impact on the 
community itself," de Hoop pointed 
out. Richmond is progressing to- 
ward a Sheltered Workshop under 
the direction of a board chaired by 
Dr. Ralph White, a member of the 
Special Education and Rehabilitation 
Department. 




"In addition, we are involved if 
vocational education for the handil 
capped with the College of Applie(' 
Arts and Technology. Since 10% o 
the money to vocational educatiot 
must be spent on the handicapped! 
we need this cooperation to com 
plement both our programs." 

de Hoop is quick to emphasiz( 
that this growth and interest in spe 
cial education has also resulted frorr 
close internal personnel relation- 
ships. 

"We have a very close relation-j 
ship among the faculty within th€ 
department itself," he said, "andj 
we have had a great deal of assist- 
ance and interest from the College 
of Education. When you add to this 
the reception that the University ad- 
ministration and the library per- 
sonnel have given us, it makes our 



20

growth and our ability to reach our 
goals a great deal easier." 

Last fall, the Special Education 
Department moved into new facili- 
ties in the Wallace Building. Here 
students have the latest equipment: 
two soundproof suites for audio- 
metric testing, several multi-pur- 
pose rooms for experimental classes 
with booths, faculty offices and 
other related facilities. Exceptional 
children have been made available 
during the day for classes in the 
new structure, under contracts with 
the Bluegrass Mental Health-Mental 
Retardation Board. 

In addition the department is now 
working with the Kentucky River 
Foothills Association which got 
$430,000 in federal money for pre- 
school programs for children from 
low socio-economic backgrounds 
who are prone to be handicapped. 
The association which covers four 
counties — Madison, Clark, Powell, 
and Estill — maintains one unit in the 
Wallace Building and pays for one 
instructor and assistant instructor 
chosen by the Special Education De- 
partment. 

"It is a great help to us," de Hoop 
said, "it gives us an opportunity to 
try new techniques to see if forms 
of exceptionality can be prevented. 
This represents an important switch 
from the care of the exceptional to 
the prevention of exceptionality." 

Organization of the Special Edu- 
Ication Department falls into five 
!programs which are staffed by nine 
'faculty members. 

The oldest program. Speech Path- 
ology and Audiology, existed as a 
ispeech pathology program before 
the re-organization of the College 
of Education in 1969. 
I The emphasis here, according to 
'Dr. Howard Eidot, associate profes- 
sor, is to "provide speech therapists 
in the public schools. We hope to 
emphasize non-teaching situations 
.later. 

I "There is a definite need for 
'speech therapists in Kentucky 
schools," Eldot continued, "and we 
3re committed to supplying quali- 
jfied people for these positions. As 
ive train, we plan to render a serv- 
ice at the same time. Eventually, 

WINTER, 1972 



we hope to assist public schools in 
the area of hearing screening for 
pre-school and school age chil- 
dren." 

Presently about 70 students are 
enrolled in speech and hearing pro- 
grams. "We are training oriented," 
Eldot said, "and as we look to the 
future, we hope to emphasize the 
hearing as well as the speech area 
and turn out people who can han- 
dle the diagnostic and therapeutic 
needs of those whose hearing is 
impaired." 

Eventually, Eldot sees this pro- 
gram contributing to the campus 
community by screening the speech 
and hearing for those going into any 
area where speech and hearing im- 
pairment would be to their disad- 
vantage. 

"What we want is a well-balanced 
program which meets the needs in 
both speech and hearing areas with- 
out emphasizing one at the expense 
of the other." 



program. Under the direction of 
Dr. Mary M. Roberts, rehabilitation 
enrolled about 40 majors. 

"We were awarded a planning 
grant by the federal government for 
the first year," Dr. Roberts said, 
"and the program was approved by 
the University in the spring of 1970. 

"We prepare our students to 
work with many different types of 
handicapped individuals. Rehabili- 
tation services should be available 
to the entire gamut of those in 
need: the physically disabled, the 
emotionally handicapped, the men- 
tally retarded, and those unem- 
ployed or underemployed because 
of alcoholism, drug addiction, a 
prison or delinquency record, too 
little education, or just plain pov- 
erty," she said. 

The department also offers a re- 
habilitation minor which is popular 
with majors in related fields such as 
social work, recreation, or psychol- 
ogy. 



". . . we have left an impact on the community^' 



Dr. Ralph White, of the Mental 
Retardation Program, looks into the 
future and sees a great responsibility 
for this area and the Special Edu- 
cation Department as a whole. 

"State legislation requires that 
public schools shall furnish pro- 
grams for the handicapped by July 
1, 1974," he said, "so we must not 
only meet the present needs, but 
anticipate the even greater needs 
when this legislation goes into ef- 
fect." 

With approximately 150 students 
enrolled in its graduate and under- 
graduate programs, mental retarda- 
tion makes good use of the new 
facilities. 

"We have a self-contained class- 
room for severely retarded young- 
sters," White said, "it's just like a 
public school classroom, except it's 
within the department. Our stu- 
dents come from area homes; they 
are not accepted in the public 
schools." 

The 1970-71 school year was the 
first for the Rehabilitation Education 



Presently the BS program is the 
only one offered in rehabilitation at 
Eastern. "At this point we are try- 
ing to develop and improve our 
undergraduate courses so that our 
students get the best possible pro- 
fessional preparation," Dr. Roberts 
said, "the Assistant State Superin- 
tendent for Rehabilitation Services 
in Kentucky, Ben Coffman, has cited 
the growing need for individuals 
prepared at the bachelors degree 
level." 

Presently, the University has a 
contract with the State Bureau for 
Rehabilitation, providing for Mrs. 
Sena Sword to teach with the de- 
partment for three-fourth time, and 
act as Rehabilitation Counselor-in- 
Residence at EKU for the remainder 
of the time. 

A fourth program. Learning Dis- 
abilities, Behaviorally Disordered 
Socially Deviant, has a unique or- 
ganization where three members of 
the department have formed a con- 
sortium to achieve their objectives. 

Dr. Roy Meckler, Dr. Barbara 



21 




<t 



Stock and Miss Beverly-jean Rob- 
bins work together with the teach- 
ers of a Head Start class, a class for 
trainable mentally retarded chil- 
dren, and a class for children with 
school problems, in order to co- 
ordinate these classes with univer- 
sity classes. The goal is to have 
university students gain valuable ex- 
perience in working with the vari- 
ous types of special students. 

Part of the program involves the 
use of field representatives (gradu- 
ate student' vorking on their MA's) 
who work m the Richmond and 
Madison County public schools to 
find and screen students for the 
special classes on campus. The con- 
sortium works with these field rep- 
resentatives to communicate the po- 
tential of these classes to the public 
schools. 

"These representatives are getting 
training," Dr. Meckler said, "and 
when the students go back to the 
public school classrooms, these reps 
go with them to see that their re- 
admission is an orderly and con- 
structive one." 

Students pursuing degrees in this 
area have many career possibilities 



open to them, but Dr. Meckler feels 
that one new kind of position is 
especially exciting, that of the re- 
source teacher. 

"The resource teacher is simply a 
consultant to the regular teacher," 
he said, "and he works with these 
teachers so that the kids can remain 
in the regular classes as much as 
possible." 

Dr. Meckler realizes that self-con- 
tained classes are in order for chil- 
dren with severe problems, but he 
feels that the kids should stay in the 
regular classroom if at all possible. 

Presently, more than 200 gradu- 
ate and undergraduate students are 
enrolled in the program which is 
well underway toward making im- 
portant contributions to the total 
special education curriculum. 

Dr. de Hoop, department chair- 
man, is also responsible for the 
fifth program. Educational Therapy. 
Originally from the Netherlands, 
de Hoop has been an elementary 
teacher and principal. He came to 
Eastern from West Georgia College 
where he was coordinator of special 
education. 

Students entering the educational

therapy program may get a BS ir 
secondary education and add cer- 
tification in educational therapy 
de Hoop indicated that the progranr 
cooperates with the University's 
Allied Health Committee, the Col 
.ege of Education and the Veteran? 
Administration in Lexington to pre- 
pare students. 

"Admittedly few people are inter- 
ested in educational therapy, and 
the jobs that are available, although 
good, are mostly open in mental 
hospitals or the Veterans Adminis- 
tration. But, we feel that such train- 
ing is an important service that we 
can offer within the department," 
he said. 

de Hoop also points with pride to 
the new program for supervisors 
of special education which is be- 
coming a reality. "We are initiating 
a new program leading to state cer- 
tification as Supervisor of Special 
Education," he said, "the program 
requires 15 to 18 semester hours 
of coursework beyond the MA Ed. 
degree. Plans are being made to 
offer this new program in coopera- 
tion with the department of educa- 
tional administration." 

So, with its five programs and the 
new certification program housed in 
new facilities this year, the Special 
Education Department continues to 
search, organize, re-organize, and 
make its important contributions to 
Eastern. Its movement reflects a 
growth that indicates a concern for 
the exceptional child — that by-prod 
uct of a complex society that has all 
too often championed only medi 
ocrity. It's a movement that will 
hopefully never stop.

THE EASTERN KENTUCKY UNIVERSITY ALUMNUS 



.earning to Live Happily With jimmy 



By Malinda Tomaro, '58 

From The Exceptional Parent Magazine, April/May, 1972 




VINTER, 1972 



23 



■ all is not far away and in our yard we 
are watching the children enjoying the 
last few days of summer vacation. 
Maria, our daughter, is sharing confi- 
dences with friends. Her twin brother, 
Jimmy, is delighted with the squeals 
from the girls when he swerves toward 
them on his bike, then veers off into the 
driveway. It is a time of contentment, a 
time six years ago we never dreamed 
possible. 

The children are now eight years old. 
Maria attends the third grade and Jimmy 
is developing into a happy, responsive 
boy. The first four years of his life he 
was a withdrawn and frustrated child. 
Screaming tantrums, which continued 
sometimes hour after hour, broke his 
otherwise total silence. Other nerve- 
wracking acts such as: broken win- 
dows, shattered by thrown objects; the 
constant clatter of spinning pot lids; the 
banging bed throughout the night; dirty 
diapers; formula bottles (he would not 
be weaned); objects whizzing past our 
heads; and the tension of trying to live 
with that wild, unreachable, well-loved 
child formed the patterns of his early 
life, and ours with him. 

How did we ever arrive at his happy, 
peaceful afternoon? In retrospect, what 
we learned about coping with and 
changing Jimmy's unacceptable be- 
havior seems to be the major factor. 

4*roper Behavior 

Ideally, proper behavior is the result 
of the appropriate choice of action 
made by the person involved in a given 




situation. We choose to behave "prop- 
erly," not always in order to get what 
we want, but because we consider the 
possible results of our actions. Jimmy 
could not understand these concepts. 

24 



He knew only his desires and attempted 
to fulfill them any way he could, pre- 
ferably immediately. The manner in 
which we disciplined him had to be 
carefully thought out and enforced. As 
an undisciplined child, Jimmy was hard 
to live with. Also, his sense of security 
was threatened by not knowing what 
to expect. Our disturbed child could 
make no choices because he had not 
been taught behavior which reflected 
social awareness. "I want what I want 
when I want it" describes jimmy's be- 
havior before we started to work with 
him. 



Teaching Jimniy and Learning Ourselves 

In helping our disturbed child to ac- 
ceptable behavior, we found the most 
necessary characteristics that we, as 
parents, had to possess and show to 
Jimmy were persistence, firmness, and 
joy (joy in his improvement, joy in our 
growth with him). Patience did not 
come simply with our understanding 
of the problem. We had to learn pa- 
tience through the menial, never- 
ending, repetitious tasks that had to be 
done. 



Patience 

Jim always got out of bed several 
times during the night and attempted to 
roam around. Night after night, year 
after year, we got up and put him back 
to bed saying, "Now Jim goes to bed." 
It took patience to repeat this every 
night for years, but finally Jim respond- 
ed to the command and now sleeps 
through the night. Jim constantly 
jumped up and down on the beds. 
Hundreds of times we removed him 
saying, "Beds are for sleeping." In time, 
the words had meaning for him. We 
found our patience became thinner and 
thinner with every repeated word and 
action, but Jim's resistance became 
weaker and weaker, also. We strived 
not for unlimited patience, but just 
enough to outlast Jim's resistance. 



Persistence 

Persistence, that is, our commitment 
to Jimmy's "education," was necessary 
so he would learn to know what was 
expected of him. There were times 
when illness, fatigue or simple self-pity 
tempted us. It would have been so 
easy to let him roam the house or 
jump on the beds. It took less time just 
to pick up the clothes he pulled from 
the drawers than to grasp his hands and 
make them move through the motions 
of, "Put it back." However, we soon 
realized that when we failed to always 
respond the same way to his misbe- 
havior, our next attempt at controlling 



his behavior was met with renewed 
sistance. 



Firmness 

Jim needed firmness from us. ' 
filled his need by responding w 
either praise or corrective action. ' 
were very indecisive with him in i 
early years when we were bombarc 
by advice from well-meaning relati 
and friends. When he screamed 
hours, we were advised to spank hi 
quit spoiling him, or ignore him. Wh 
we spanked him we felt guilty. Whii 
we refused to be gently responsive I) 
him, we felt sick at heart. When we 
nored him, we felt we were not he 
ing him to learn. Very quickly we c 
cided to look squarely at the behav- 
that bothered us, decide on a fair al 
possible solution, then, with a commi- 
ment to firmness that resisted cont 
dictory advice, we learned to do c 
utmost to react with persistence a< 
patience. 



Setting Limits 

Because of the inability of our d 
turbed child to make choices, we h 
to guide Jimmy in choosing. For e 
ample, one of his compulsive hab 
was spinning anything he got in h 
hands. When guiding him to appropi 
ate choices we did the following. V 
said, "The plate is for eating, the tc 
is for spinning," and with these dire| 
tions the plate was taken away and, 
top placed in his hands. This routir 
had to be performed repeatedly un, 
he was able to learn the appropria 
function of various objects. 

We learned to build on this limitir 
type of discipline by including specif] 
locations where certain things migl' 
be done. Jimmy went through a spij 
ting period and a definite place w^ 
specified where this habit was allowed 
Locations would be the bathroom sinj 
outdoors, toilet, or various other ap 
propriate places. Anytime the spittinj 
started, Jimmy was moved to the desig 
nated area with the words, "Do not spj 
on people, you may spit in the sink.' 
Throwing objects was a problem, ar 
other phase we survived. We desig 
nated a spot where throwing things wa 
safe, never forgetting to verbalize ou 
actions as we did them, "No throwin; 
in the house, Jimmy may throw in thi 
basement." 

We learned that nothing was eve, 
gained by the use of extreme physical 
punishment. Because of Jimmy's withl 
drawn state, incidents were isolateo 
from each other so that he did not sefj 
the spanking as a direct result of hii 



THE EASTERN KENTUCKY UNIVERSITY ALUMNUS 



iCt. He knew only that it was a pain- 
ul experience at the hands of another 
luman being. The only time a spank- 
ng was effective was after Jimmy was 
lisciplined in other ways for a long 
jeriod of time and had become aware 
,)f cause and effect. Until this aware- 
less occurred, mild physical punlsh- 
nent was of no effect, except to drive 
,iim deeper into his withdrawn state. 
Vhen we had to release the anger we 
elt, we kicked a pillow, slammed a 
loor or punched a pillow, but we never 
ised extreme physical force on that 
hild whom we deeply loved! 



iZhild-Proofing the Environment 

In the initial stage of helping Jimmy 
'hoose acceptable behavior we had to 
18 willing to live in a child-proofed 
lOuse. When Jimmy constantly pulled 
lown drapes, it was far better to re- 
nove them for a few weeks until his 
■mpulse subsided and a new activity 
leld his interest. Jimmy constantly 
)ulled books from the bookcase. We 
urned the case around for about three 
veeks. We righted it, Jimmy com- 
)letely ignored it. In spite of the dis- 
'omfort of living in an undecorated 
lome, it seemed far better and easier 
,han having something of value per- 
nanently destroyed. We learned that 
immy, in his slow progress to more ac- 
eptable behavior, passed through most 
if these stages in a few weeks. 



inticipating Trouble 

We also learned that we encountered 
fewer discipline problems by anticipat- 
ng trouble spots and trying to avoid 
hem. For example, Jim became very 
ipset when he had to leave the car. 
because he always had to leave at some 




point, we would repeatedy have this 
commentary: "Now we are riding. 
Later, Jim gets out of the car." This 
observation was made at each corner 
near our destination. Upon arrival we 
would say, "Now Jim gets out of the 
car." It took four months for the crying 
to stop. When he no longer had tan- 
trums, he would get out of the car, spit 
on it, and go happily along. Now he 
gets in and out of the family cars, 
school busses, and off bikes, slides or 
swings without reactions. 



Jimmy's Own Place 

We had an ideal situation in that our 
disturbed child had his own room. 
Where this is not possible for your 
child, he should have some area in the 
house which is his alone. This sort of 
area can be employed in disciplining 
the child. There were times when Jim- 
my did something that was not dan- 
gerous, nor destructive, but did irritate 
or embarrass us, such as loud crying, 
yelling, nose picking, masturbating, etc. 
In this way he could continue such ac- 
tions and we felt better not being di- 
rectly involved in it. We tried to re- 
member, and eventually learned that 
each human being belongs to himself 
first; a person's mind and body are al- 
ways his own. 

A major problem we encountered in 
moving Jimmy to his area for a certain 
activity was keeping him there. We 
realized that locked doors, tying a child 
down, and similar restraining tech- 
niques are usually futile and harmful to 
the child. We had to be prepared to 
to repeatedly return Jimmy to the area 
with the same words time and time 
again. 

A very effective means for keeping 
him in selected areas was to set up 
barriers. Not locked and confining bar- 
riers, but physical limits. Cape Cod 
doors are quite good for this purpose. 
The top half can be left open but the 
bottom shut. Expansion gates, used for 
toddlers, are very good. Room dividers, 
pieces of furniture, and sometimes just 
a piece of twine tying off an area will 
work. 



Masters at Avoiding Trouble 

Jim disliked houses where he was 
cramped by small spaces and many 
people hovering over him, telling him 
"No, no, don't touch." These were the 
places we visited when the children did 
not have to accompany us. We did not 
isolate him, for in isolation he never 
could learn to make any adjustments or 
cope with given situations. By practice 
at home or at the home of a friend who 




VINTER, 1972 



accepted and understood, Jimmy 
learned the niceties of visiting. 

When waiting was intolerable for 
him, we chose a restaurant where he 
could walk around while waiting to be 
served. When yelling was a problem, 
we chose a noisy place. We felt the 
informal atmosphere of family style 
restaurants would be best. There was 
always a lot of noise and many chil- 
dren at drive-in fast food places. These 
were the first places we tried in warm 
weather, when there were table out- 
doors. 

Later we were able to stop in or- 
dinary restaurants on turnpikes and 
parkways. Jimmy became very frustrat- 
ed when required to walk around in 
stores so, when he had to accompany 
us, we chose a store with a grocery cart 
so Jimmy could ride while we shopped. 



Trial and Error 

Generally, we never demanded that 
Jimmy behave just to win our point or 
concede to our wish. He has never at- 
tended church because it is not a place 
where he is free to walk around and 
make sounds. He has had a private 
baptism where he could express his dis- 
pleasure at being anointed with cold 
water. At home, he is not required to 
remain at the table after he has finished 
his meal. Learning to avoid trouble 
spots was a talent which we had to de- 
velop. Only through trial and error and 
being "tuned-in" to Jimmy's reactions, 
did we become masters at avoiding 
trouble. Sometimes we misjudged a 
situation, but the times we succeeded 
in a smooth outing out-numbered the 
times of temper tantrums and frustra- 
tions. 



25 



Talk, Talk, Talk 

Parents are asked again and again to 
talk to their non-verbal children. This 
was difficult to do and to carry through 
because Jimmy did not respond. The 
content of the talking is very important. 
Not only did we use a running com- 
mentary, but we tried, in simple sen- 
tences what Jimmy was doing and what 
he apparently felt. 

We saw Jimmy drop a book on his 
toes, then immediately pick up the 
book and hurl it across the room. We 
responded to this situation by saying, 
"jimmy dropped the book on his toes. 
His toes hurt. Jimmy is angry at the 
book. Jimmy wants to hurt the book. 
Jimmy throws the book because Jimmy 
is angry." In this way Jimmy had his 
feeling and actions put into words. 
After many incidents of this type he 
began to understand the pain and anger 
that suddenly burst upon him. 

We also used this procedure in dis- 
cipline, jimmy would get angry be- 
cause he could not perform a desired 
action. His anger grew until it com- 
pletely engulfed him. This engulfment 
was a frightening experience. His fear 
began to blot out all reality. Words, 
used properly over a period of time, 
helped him understand this torrent of 
emotion, "jimmy is angry at the toy." 
"Jimmy is mad at Mommy." "Jimmy is 
angry with Daddy." "Mommy is angry 
with Daddy." "Daddy is angry with 
Mommy." 

Reassurance Needed, 
Reassurance Given 

We found that Jimmy needed the re- 
assurance that feeling anger is all right. 
We told him! We verbalized every 
chance we got. Sometimes it was diffi- 
cult. To state the situation as we saw 
it sometimes meant diplomacy had to 
be dropped. It was hard for me to say, 
"Daddy is angry at Jimmy because 
Daddy is tired," or, "Daddy does not 
understand." We made mistakes, and 
this too we tried to explain to jimmy. 
"Mommy stepped on Jimmy's foot. 
Mommy is sorry. Jimmy is angry at 
Mommy. Mommy is sorry she made 
Jimmy's foot hurt." 

Storms used to frighten Jim. We 
helped him through them by watching 
for the flash of lightning and then an- 
nouncing, "Now it will thunder." 



Consistent Words and Deeds 

in teaching discipline to Jimmy we 



tried to remember that words can and 
must be used as the tool. For our non- 
disabled child, adult actions without 
words were sometimes hard to inter- 
pret. For Jimmy, all actions had to be 
accompanied by words and all words 
had to be accompanied by consistent 
actions until he had developed an un- 
derstanding of the words alone. In our 
process of discipline, to say "No" and 
then to allow the action to continue 
only weakened the power of the 
spoken word. Jimmy needed the rein- 
forcement of action to prove that the 
spoken word had value and was a 
meaningful means of discipline and 
communication in itself. 

jimmy had no conception of what 
was harmful to himself or others. Many 
times our command was the only thing 
which prevented a terrible accident. 
This is a hard lesson to teach a dis- 
turbed child and the use of the two 
words, "Do not!," must be often rein- 
forced by actions for a long, long time 
before they are understood. 



Helping Jimmy Solve 
His Own Problems 

The child should help solve the prob- 
lem he creates. When Jimmy upset the 
flower pot, we took his hands and 
moved them through the motions of 
cleaning up the mess, talking about the 
action as it was performed. We told 
him he had upset the flowers and that 
he now must help clean up. This car- 
ried the action to a conclusion. Over 
a period of time Jimmy learned the 
process of cause and effect. He began 
to learn what part he had in the action 
and in the creation of a problem situa- 




tion and the consequences of such 
situation. I 

jimmy taught us how to give him j( 
We wanted to discover some means 
rewarding him for good behavior. Tl 
was extremely difficult because he w 
totally disinterested in toys, he i 
nothing but peanut butter sandwichi 
and drank only milk or juice from I 
bottle. Because his eating problem w 
so severe, we did not want to withho 
his food or drink as a means 
changing behavior. From the time I 
was a toddler he had loved a fingej 
play game that ended with tickling u 
der his chin. It is very hard not to lau) 
with a hilarious child so we would ; 
begin laughing together. This becarr 
our reward to him, and we still haN 
chin-tickling sessions every nIgFi 
Laughing together has been great thej 
apy for all of us. It seems that Jim h. 
reached harder for reality since it bi 
came a happy place! 

In summary, the important questior 
we asked, and ask, ourselves about th 
goals of discipline are: 

1. How important is this behavior 
am demanding of my child? 

2. What purpose will compliance t 
my demands serve? 

3. Is this demand serving appea 
ances, my own ego satisfactior 
or the safety of my child? 

4. Can this rule be enforced all th 
time? 

5. Does this rule help my child grov 
and develop? 

6. Does this rule satisfy the entir 
family, the child particularly? 

We often wondered whether we ha( 
enough patience to outlast our child! 
But, we found it somehow when we sel 
specific goals. |

The Coed And MP's 




OTC AT EASTERN is half as old 
5 the 20th Century! 

I 

Now 72 years into the 1900's, 
JStern's Reserve Officer Training 
orps was given birth in 1936 when 
eld artillery officer training was in- 
iated. The program came of age 
I 1956 when it was changed to 
3neral military science. 

With the fall semester of 1972, 
le EKU program fathered two new 
ifspring . . . reserve officer train- 
g for women students and a mili- 
ry police program. 

One of 10 universities in the 
nited States designated by the De- 

/INTER, 1972 



partment of the Army to begin train- 
ing women in a co-educational 
ROTC program, Eastern has 23 dis- 
taff cadets in its nearly 500-member 
military science program. 

Women's ROTC is a 5-year pilot 
project that, for the first time, will 
permit women to be commissioned 
as second lieutenants through Army 
ROTC participation. 

Eastern has offered military pro- 
grams for women for a number of 
years, but until the recent an- 
nouncement, they were not eligible 
for commissioning. Two coed 
groups ... a sponsor corps and the 
Valianettes, a coed drill team . . . 



have been active as performing and 
service organizations without col- 
lege credit. 

There were 187 ROTC host insti- 
tutions which wanted to participate 
in the pilot project. From the 187 
applications, only 10 could be se- 
lected and, according to Lt. Col. 
Edward H. George, associate pro- 
fessor of military science at EKU, 
"The fact that Eastern was one of 
the 10 speaks well of its ROTC pro- 
gram, its status on campus, and the 
support it gets from the University." 

Generally, the women cadets will 
take the same courses as the men; 
however, the entire curriculum, es- 

27 



pecially for the advanced classes, 
has not been finalized. They will 
not be required to take marksman- 
ship training or bear arms. They 
will be commissioned in the 
Women's Army Corps (WAC's). 

Of Eastern's 23 women cadets, 18 
are freshmen, two are sophomores, 
and three are juniors. All are en- 
rolled in first year ROTC and two 
are also taking the second year class 
. . . both courses are part of the 
basic military science curriculum. 

Two of the juniors, Bettnia Bent- 
ley, a home economics major from 
Worthington, and Patty Mains, a 
home economics major from Fal- 
mouth, were members of the EKU 
rifle team last year. They, along 
with freshman Mary Hume, a law 
enforcement major from Jackson- 
ville, Fla., are expected to compete 
for positions on the Eastern and 
ROTC rifle teams this year. 

"It's nice to know that I may be 
making a little history in being one 
of the first women to join Army 
ROTC," answered Lawrenceburg 
freshman Jackie Brown when asked 
if she had any special feelings about 
entering a program that was previ- 
ously all male. 

"I don't feel out of place in any 
way," continued Cadet Brown. "At 
first the boys couldn't believe that 
girls were actually taking ROTC. I 
think they expected us all to be 
members of the 'lib' movement or 
hard-up females trying to snare a 
male. That's ridiculous," says Jackie, 
"at least, that's not why I joined 
ROTC." 

Miss Brown, who considers her- 
self adventurous, signed up for 
ROTC because she is more ambi- 
tious than to settle for what she 
terms stereotyped women's jobs. 
She would like to see women's 
ROTC at Eastern expanded to in- 
clude groups similar to the men's 
Counter Guerrilla's, MP's, and 
Pershing Rifles.

"The boys kind of smiled about 
us at first," says Ann Roberts, a 
freshman from Louisville. "But now 
I can sit around and talk with them 
just like in any other class." 

Admitting that one of the rea- 
sons she chose to take ROTC is that 
it is unique, Cadet Roberts feels 
that the girls should not be treated 
any differently at all in the classes. 




Both of Ann's brothers have bet 
in the service and she "would lil^i

life." Miss Roberts is undecide 
about working toward a commil 
sion, but might continue in the pre

ives." 

Dianne Polston Morgan, a junior 
jlementary education major from 
.ouisville, is in the program perhaps 
DBcause her husband, Michael, is a 
;hird-year cadet working toward his 
commission. He is a junior indus- 
;rial education major from Closplint. 

Colonel Wolfred K. White, pro- 
fessor of military science at Eastern, 
stated, "The military faculty at EKU 
is gratified by the interest, enthusi- 
asm, and competitive spirit of the 
coed cadets. The military subjects 
they study," he continued, "will en- 
rich their education and better pre- 
pare them for positions of responsi- 
bility in the Army or in their home 
:ommunities. 

The program is a reflection of 
he Army's continuing interest in af- 
■ording equality of opportunity for 
'omen in its pre-professional pro- 
rams, in the Army Reserve, and in 
he Active Army," Col. White said. 
ijThe selection of EKU as one of only 
schools in the nation to conduct 
his test program attests to the via- 
ility of its military program, the 
staunch support of ROTC by Presi- 
ent Robert R. Martin and the facul- 
:y and staff, and the maturity and 
pen-mindedness of the student 
3ody." 

The new military police program 
It Eastern is designed to give stu- 
dents in EKU's School of Law En- 
forcement the opportunity to go 
into the military. A student who is 
^elected to participate in this pro- 
gram will be guaranteed a commis- 
sion in the MP Corps. 



"We feel that this program will 
Denefit the individual by providing 
lim a job in his field of training and 
nterest," notes Lt. Col. George. "It 
/vill also benefit the Army by pro- 
j/iding better qualified MP officers."

The MP Color Guard leads the band day 
now offers training for Military Police as 

Only one college hour of credit 
is different from the general military 
science program, but the student 
must complete 12 specific hours of 
law enforcement, consisting of 
Police Patrol and Services, Correc- 
tional Institutions, Police Adminis- 
tration II, and Criminal Law. 

There are currently four seniors 
and 10 juniors formally in the MP 
program. However, there are 82 
freshmen and sophomore cadets 
who are law enforcement majors 
and therefore potential military 
police candidates since they do not 
have to indicate such a desire until 
the beginning of their junior year. 

At this time, only one other 
school offers the MP program in 
Army ROTC and that is the Univer- 
sity of Texas. 

Eastern's ROTC cadets may be 
commissioned in one of 1 5 
branches of the Army, plus, now, 
the WAC's. Cadets may choose in- 



parade down Lancaster Avenue. Eastern 
part of its expanding ROTC curricula. 

fantry, field artillery, air defense 
artillery, armor, corps of engineers, 
signal corps, medical service, mili- 
tary intelligence, military police, 
quartermaster, ordnance, transpor- 
tation, adjutant general, finance 
or chemical. 

Each cadet who is a candidate for 
commissioning makes four choices, 
in order of preference, during the 
fourth year of his ROTC program. 
Last year, over 73 per cent of East- 
ern's cadets were commissioned 
into the field of their first choice. 
Another 13 per cent got their sec- 
ond choice while less than four per 
cent failed to get one of their first 
four choices. 

Eastern dropped the requirement 
for mandatory ROTC at the begin- 
ning of the 1971-72 school year to 
provide the student more academic 
freedom of choice. Freshmen and 
sophomores now have the option 
to take eight college hours of mili- 
tary science or eight hours of elec- 



29 



tives which do not apply to their 
major or minor. 

Generally, the first two years of 
military science deal with self-im- 
provement of the individual, devel- 
opment of awareness, self-disci- 
pline, individual responsibility, 
teamwork, cooperation, self-confi- 
dence, dependability, and good 
character. More professionally 
oriented are units in military disci- 
pline, leadership ability, patriotic 
understanding of ROTC, introduc- 
tion of the defense organization of 
the country, basic principles of mili- 
tary science and tactics, and identi- 
fication of good citizenship and 
leadership. 

More specifically, the first year in- 
cludes principles, tactics, weapons 
familiarization, simple field man- 
euvers, patrolling and problem solv- 
ing. There are also sessions in ter- 
minology, ranks, grades, uniforms 
and customs. 

The second year of ROTC is more 
academically oriented with studies 
in land navigation, map reading, 
aerial photo reading, and basic 
tactics. Military history is listed as 
one of the favorite courses because 
looking back upon successes and 
failures is an important method of 
analyzing strategy. 

In the third and fourth year pro- 
grams, attention is turned much 
more to theoretical and abstract 
subjects. Leadership, responsibility, 
applied psychology, more detailed 
tactics, the importance of world 
conditions on our military forces 
(international relations), and the re- 
lation between technological ad- 
vancements and military equipment. 
There are simulated problems which 
must be solved both in the class- 
room and in the field and there is 
more forum-type teaching than lec- 
turing. 

In Eastern's ROTC program, the 
name of the game is leadership, a 
skill which will be of value to the 
student in whatever vocation is 
chosen . . . military or civilian . . . 
man or woman.

Allied Health 

. . .'safety in numbers' 



BY JOHN WINNECKE 
Assistant EKU News Director 



LLIED HEALTH ... a term not to be mis- 
aken for the name of a weightwatcher's club, 
or a shop where one might purchase brown 
ice, wheat germ and carrot juice, nor a group 
f World War I military units banded together 
3r the safety of numbers. 

Phrased simply, though. Allied Health is 
afety in numbers, because it is the concept 
r idea meaning different health care profes- 
ionals working together as a team for the 
ommon purpose of curing illness or main- 
lining health. 

in the past, most health care has been ad- 
linistered by the doctors in the various 
elds, but the increasing demand for health 
srvices coupled with the dramatic shortage 
f doctors has created a need for dependence 
pon other health professions to render the 
ealth services. New developments in medi- 
al science areas have also brought about a 
eed for well-trained specialists in the health 
eld. 

According to the U.S. Department of 
ealth, Education, and Welfare, Allied Health 
lanpower, used broadly, refers to all those

professional, technical, and suppor- 
tive workers in the fields of patient 
care, community health, and related 
health research who engage in ac- 
tivities that support, compliment, or 
supplement the professional func- 
tions of administrators and practi- 
tioners. 

Eastern Kentucky University is 
committed to the alleviation of a 
personnel shortage in this area 
through the careful study of the 
needs and employment opportuni- 
ties in view of existing facilities and 
possible programs. 

"We have a campus-wide com- 
mitment to serve the needs of the 



students and the community in the 
area of Allied Health Programs," 
states Dr. Kenneth Clawson, Dean 
of Richmond Community College 
and acting coordinator of EKU's 
Allied Health Programs, pointing 
out that four of the University's five 
colleges are directly involved in the 
programs. 

Eastern presently offers 18 de- 
grees or areas of concentration in 
17 Allied Health professions. Asso- 
ciate of Arts (2-year) degrees are 
available in food service technology, 
nursing, medical record technology, 
clinical medical assisting, and ad- 
ministrative medical asssiting. 



Baccalaureate (4-year) degree' 
are offered in school health, publi 
health (which includes a major i 
community health and one in en 
vironmental sanitation), speec 
pathology and audiology, dietetic; 
rehabilitation counseling, medic2 
technology, nursing, and socia 
work. 

Areas of concentration, as a par 
of a baccalaureate degree program! 
include corrective therapy, manua 
arts therapy, therapeutic recreation 
and educational therapy. 

In addition to these programs 
Eastern offers seven pre-profes 
sional health related curricula fo

tudents who prefer to attend EKU 
rst and then transfer to a profes- 
onal school for their advanced 
/ork in medicine, dentistry, veter- 
lary medicine, optometry, physical 
lerapy, dental hygiene, and phar- 
lacy. 

To be thoroughly successful, such 
rograms cannot be administered 
ntirely within a classroom. East- 
rn involves numerous outside 
gencies in providing practical train- 
ig for its Allied Health students. 
3r example, there are approxi- 
lately 15 hospitals in the Central 
entucky area with which Eastern 
as clinical affiliations for its nurs- 
ig and other Allied Health stu- 
ents. 

Historically, Eastern's Allied 

ealth curriculum began with its 

jrsing program in 1965 and has 

own to the point where it now 

^ers more Allied Health programs 

an any other institution in Ken- 

cky (by definition. Allied Health 

jes not include professional and 

■e-professional curricula). 

Currently, Eastern, which offers 

3th the associate and baccalaure- 

degrees in nursing, annually 

aduates more nurses than any 

her program in the state, and has 

e only medical record technology 

ogram in Kentucky, and it is one 

the largest in the country. 

While Eastern's Allied Health 

ograms are available on 2-year 

id 4-year degree levels, its pre- 

rofessional training programs may 

iiclude two, three, or four years of 

!udy, the latter generally accom- 

jinied by a baccalaureate degree, 

receding transfer to a professional 

tstitution. 

It has been projected that one of 

te great needs of this decade will 

k an adequate supply of trained 

iTsonnel in Allied Health. Rising 

iicomes, better education, urbani- 

ition, population growth and its 

(anging structure, expanded pri- 

Mte insurance programs and public 

lalth coverage are among the fac- 

tjrs which combine to make tre- 

ii2ndous demands on the country's 

tialth resources. -EKlSl -

cians evaluate srtength, endurance, self-care ability, and other data as a means of 
gauging the patient's progress and recovery rate. 

THERAPEUTIC RECREATION — Therapists provide services for people who are 
ill, disabled, or handicapped. Also they are responsible for planning and directing 
certain recreational activities that are particularly useful to their patients. 

SCHOOL HEALTH — The main concern of the school health educator is the 
teaching of health knowledge, attitudes, and practices to children and youth. 

COMMUNITY HEALTH — Concentration is on the "stay well" function of 
health and emphasized a team approach to solving problems. A community health 
educator normally is employed by a state or local health department. 

ENVIRONMENTAL SANITATION — Personnel in this area is a member of the 
public health team who prevents the spread of disease by eliminating or controlling 
its sources or carriers. Some work with physicians who specialize in environ- 
mental and occupational health, while others are food and drug specialists and 
urban planners. 

SPEECH PATHOLOGY AND AUDIOLOGY — Specialists are concerned with 
problems and disorders of human communication as manifested in the process of 
speech and hearing. Problems commonly handled are stuttering, lisping, cleft 
palates, cerebral palsy, and impaired hearing. 

REHABILITATION COUNSELING — Psychological, educational and vocational 
counselors serve persons handicapped by a mental or physical disorder. 

EDUCATIONAL THERAPY — Therapists administer medical treatment through 
the use of educational activities that are of vocational significance to the patient. 
One of the purposes is to help the patient "get his mind off his troubles." 

MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY — Technologists perform scientific, fact-finding tests 
in the clinical laboratory that help track down the cause and cure of disease. 
This career combines a knowledge of science plus working with patients, and is 
one of the most needed members of the health team. 

SOCIAL WORK — A problem solving profession with concern for the indi- 
vidual and/or groups, and communities where there is less than adequate adjust- 
ment or where there is limited ability to function or cope with personal, inter- 
personal, social, or environmental factors. 

DIETETICS — The dietitian is a specialist in the science of foods and nutrition. 
The administrative dietitian is responsible for food purchasing and production while 
the teaching dietitian trains and instructs various paramedical workers, the research 
dietitian, and the therapeutic dietitian, who plans special diets. 

FOOD SERVICE TECHNOLOGY — Technicians work directly with dietitians in 
the planning, preparation, and service of meals in hospitals, schools, or other food 
service establishments. 

NURSING — Professional or registered nurses begin their career as a general 
duty nurse in a hospital or physician's office or other community agency. Acting 
under the direction of a physician, the general duty nurse plans the patient's 
nursing care in the hospital, teaching the patients to take part in their own therapy. 
They also supervise practical nurses, aides, and orderlies. 

MEDICAL RECORD TECHNICIAN — The technician assists the medical records 
librarian in technical work such as assembling medical records, preparing reports, 
and setting up disease indexes, and sometimes supervising the day-to-day opera- 
tion. 

CLINICAL MEDICAL ASSISTANT — The assistant's primary function in the phy- 
sician's office is to assist him in patient examinations and other clinical tasks. 
Trained in secretarial skills, she is not a nurse or medical technologist, but is pre- 
pared to carry out some of the more simple functions of these two professions. 

ADMINISTRATIVE MEDICAL ASSISTANT — Assistants are trained in the basic 
secretarial skills but have a wider range, serving as receptionists, insurance "ex- 
perts", accountants, housekeepers, and secretaries. 

MANUAL ARTS THERAPY — The professional use of work activities or an in- 
dustrial arts and agricultural nature to assist patients in their recovery. The manual 
arts therapist works with all types of hospitalized patients.

Ombudsman: 

Miss Hibbard Listens 

Miss Janet Caynor Hibbard, as- 
sistant professor of business admin- 
istration, has been named ombuds- 
man at Eastern. 

And Miss Hibbard, who is the 
fourth EKU faculty member — and 
the first woman — to hold this of- 
fice, said, "I am delighted to be 
Eastern's first 'ombudswoman'." 

The office was created in 1969 by 
the Board of Regents to assist stu- 
dents to find solutions for problems 
that arise in a complex institution. 

The ombudsman receives the re- 
quests, concerns and grievances of 
students and sees that they reach 
the attention of the proper univer- 
sity official. Also the ombudsman 
makes recommendations to the 
president concerning students' 
problems for which no satisfactory 
answer has been found. 

The ombudsman has broad in- 
vestigatory powers and direct access 
to all university officials. Privileged 
information received in the exer- 
cise of the ombudsman's duties is 
kept in strict confidence. 

Previous EKU ombudsmen have 
been Dr. William H. Berge, profes- 
sor of history; Dr. Jack A. Luy, asso- 
ciate dean of the College of Applied 
Arts and Technology; and Dr. 
Charles L. Ross, professor of edu- 
cational administration. 

Miss Hibbard, who received the 
bachelor of science and the master 
of arts degrees from Eastern, said 
her appointment provides "an op- 
portunity and a responsibility, a 
chance to work more closely with 
students and with all persons in the 
total academic community." 

She said she will "make every 
effort to correct unintentional in- 
justices that arise as the result of 
organizational structures in which 




Miss Janet Hibbard, '55 
Campus Ombudsman 

complexities may confuse stu- 
dents." 

The ombudsman is appointed by 
the Board of Regents upon recom- 
mendation by the president. 

Miss Hibbard will teach half-time 
and make herself "reasonably avail- 
able for conference during the nor- 
mal business hours of the Univer- 
sity." 

WHAS Crusade: 
Funding Special Ed 

An $18,000 allocation to Eastern 
Kentucky University from the WHAS 
Crusade for Children will provide 
about 80 scholarships to train 
teachers in special education, ac- 
cording to Dr. Wietse deHoop, 
chairman of the EKU Department of 
Special Education and Rehabilita- 
tion. (See page 19.) 

He said 12 $500 scholarships will 
be awarded in December to Eastern 
graduates who will enter graduate 
training in special education. Others 
of various amounts will be awarded 
in the spring. 

This year's Crusade allocation to 
Eastern exceeded by $4,000 last 
year's amount which helped train 
70 special education teachers. 



Enrollment: 

Another Record 

Eastern has enrolled a record tdij 
12,341 students for the 1972 
semester. 

Included in this figure is an , 
time high on-campus total of 1 
505, which represents a 3.3 | 
cent increase over last fall's ( 
campus figure of 10,170. 

The overall enrollment total a 
includes 736 students at Easter 
Model Laboratory School and 
estimated 1,100 students enroll 
in some 65 off-campus extensii 
courses being offered in some 1 
Kentucky counties. Several exte 
sion classes are still in the proctis 
of organization. 

Not included in the enrolim« 
figure are approximately 2,500 p' 
sons Eastern will serve this y«r 
through its correspondence pi- 
gram. j 

President Martin indicated tf|t 
the 10,505 figure may still be i- 
vised upward. Students are rt 
counted in the EKU enrollment u- 
til they have paid their fees, ar, 
according to Dr. Martin, there v. 
still some students who are attenj- 
ing classes while waiting for loa|i 
and making other financial arrange- 
ments. These are not included • 
the figures. 

The record enrollment followsi 
year in which EKU graduated th 
largest number in its history, 
total of 2,275 students received d,

financial Aid: 

] Opening The Avenues 

Students enrolled at Eastern have 
'nany avenues of financial assistance 
inder some aid programs, accord- 
ng to Herbert S. Vescio, director of 
^udent financial assistance. 

Vescio said more than half of EKU 
Itudents each semester usually re- 
eive some kind of financial aid 
'om private or public sources. This 
id totaled more than $3 million 
ast spring, he said. 

The National Direct Student Loans 
tenerally lead the list of student 
'ids in money amounts. 

Qualified high school graduates 
''ith "exceptional need" receive 
ducational Opportunity Grants un- 
er the U. S. Higher Education Act

Students maintaining satisfactory 
tademic progress and carrying at 
■■ast 12 hours may be provided jobs 
nder a work-study program. This 

under the Federal Economic Op- 
ortunity Act of 1964. The Institu- 
onal Work Program also provides 
udent jobs. 

Loans and grants are also avail- 
pie to students in law enforcement, 
ursing, music, science, and other 

eas within the University.

The Student Body 



Alumni Scholars: 
The Six Speak Up 

Six undergraduates, some with 
sparkling academic records, others 
with urgent financial need, and all 
with a definite philosophy about 
their lives, entered Eastern this fall 
on alumni scholarships. Three came 
for the first time. 

Chosen for their scholarship and 
leadership potential, recipients con- 
tinue on scholarship for eight se- 
mesters provided they maintain at 
least a 2.0 academic standing and 
remain off social probation. 

"And, all our scholarships depend 
on whether alumni contributions are 
sufficient to maintain them," ac- 
cording to J. W. Thurman, Director 
of Alumni Affairs. 

Thus far, the alumni have main- 
tained the scholarships which 
amount to $1200 per student over 
eight semesters. 

The veteran of this year's group 
is Darlene Wilborn, a senior from 
Shelbyville. A music major, Darlene 
came to Eastern because her cousin, 
Steve, a former Student Association 
president, influenced her. 

"I blew one whole year because 
of roommate trouble," she remem- 
bers, "but there was no pressure 
from the Alumni Association, so I 
pulled myself back up thanks to the 
LIniversity Counseling Center." 

"I really appreciate the alumni 
scholarship," she continued, "there 
were three of us in college at the 
same time, so I don't think I could 
have made it financially." 

Unlike some freshmen, Darlene 
sees the replacement of fall registra- 
tion with a summer registration 
program as a detriment to the fresh- 
ment's college experience. "I hated 
registration when I was a freshman," 
she smiled, "but that was part of the 
experience. Besides, it gave us 
something to talk about." 

Sue Smith, a junior from Man- 
chester, hopes to become a free 
lance writer following a degree in 
journalism. 

She talks of her college experi- 




Darlene Wilborn 
. . . the lone senior 

ence with an air of confidence 
which has developed during her 
years on campus. "I've changed an 
awful lot since I came here," she 
says, "I've learned. I've come out; 
I've become an extrovert. I can do 
almost anything I set out to do 
now." 

Sue finds her non-academic life 
more "educational" than the aca- 
demic side. "I've found that some 
classes aren't really worthwhile," 
she says, "but the people I meet, 
and the ideas they have, really make 
me think about myself." 

Sharon Stephens, like her coun- 
terparts, sports an outstanding aca- 
demic record. Finishing first in a 
class of 152 at Russell County High, 
Sharon came to Eastern and began 
her major in psychology last year. 

She had decided on Eastern be- 
fore applying for the scholarship, 
and as she puts it, "I decided if I 
couldn't go to Eastern, I wouldn't 
go anywhere." 

Sharon looks at her college ex- 
perience with an air of maturity. 
"I've had teachers I disagreed with," 
she smiles, "but I had to do things 
their way. I know you have to con- 
form at times. There's no such thing 
as a non-conformist, you know. I've 
learned that ! can't have everything 
my own way. I simply have to com- 
promise. I think that's why some 
kids don't fare too well here." 

Her expectations for her college 

35 



education are straightforward. "I 
thinl< my degere should help me to 
do what I want to do," she says 
matter-of-factiy. 

The three remaining scholars are 
all freshmen, and ail are still, as they 
put it, "finding themselves." 

Cynthia Garth, of St. Louis, Mis- 
souri, is the only out-of-stater on an 
alumni scholarship. Standing fifth 
in her high school class of 562, she 
came to Eastern in the footsteps of 
her parents. 

"My parents influenced me to 
come to Eastern," she said, "but I 
also knew that Eastern had a good 
child development program, and 
that's my major." 

Cynthia has already found "learn- 
ing to get by on my own" the big- 
gest challenge of college life. And, 
she adds, "I hope to grow up a lot 
while I'm down here." 

Her biggest surprise has been the 
people. "I was told they would 
be," she grins, "but I've found 
people a lot friendlier than I ex- 
pected." 

The other two freshmen, Susan 
Jones and Bruce Farris, are both 
from Corbin and both are May 
graduates of Corbin High School. 

Susan hopes to go into interior 
decorating when she graduates. 
"College has already begun to 
change me," she says, "I once felt I 
wanted to stay in Corbin all my life, 
but now, I want to know more 
about the world outside. I need to 
learn to get along with and adjust 
to other people, and that's what I'm 
here for." 

Bruce, who hopes to become an 
accountant, feels that "college is a 
background for working up to the 
'real' education. People will be 
paying my salary, so I've got to 
learn to get along with them," he 
says. 

"I've become aware of many dif- 
ferent kinds of people," he con- 
tinued, "and I've become sort of a 
skeptic about everything." 

What does he want from his col- 
lege education? "If I'm convinced 
that something is right, I want to be 
bold enough to convince others, 
and not sit silently by and do noth- 
ing about it."

The scholars represent a wide 
range of interests on the campus. 
The freshmen are still getting in- 
volved, but the upper-classmen are 
making valuable contributions to 
campus life. 

Sharon is sports editor of the 
Milestone, a member of CWENS, 
the sophomore women's honorary, 
and hopes to become a charter 
member of a new social sorority. 
Phi Mu Phi. 

Darlene is also a member of 
CWENS, and Kappa Delta Tau, a 
service sorority. She has been in 
the EKU Chamber Choir for four 
years and played in the EKU Sym- 
phony Orchestra. 

Sue, a former feature and copy 
editor of her high school news- 
paper, is still pursuing her journal- 
ism interests as a member of The 
Eastern Progress, the award-winning 
EKU weekly.

These six, all here with a liti 
help from the Alumni Associatio 
will hopefully become good alum 
when they graduate. And, wi 
continuing alumni support, tl 
number can be increased so th 
more deserving students can have 
bit of help along the way from tho 
who have traveled the road befo 
them. 

Judith Powell: 
Sniffing Heroin 

Miss Judith A. Powell, a chemisti 
major at Eastern, spent most of tl 
summer in Washington, D.C., hel| 
ing design a mechanical hero 
"sniffer" for the U.S. government' 

She was selected for the job 
the Bureau of Customs' resean 
laboratory from a group of 20 sti 
dents representing 10 colleges ar 
universities participating in tl^' 
1972 Federal Summer Intern Prij 
gram. The Bureau is in the U.' 
Treasury Department. 

Miss Powell said the "sniffer" wij 
designed for use by New York Ci! 
policemen in detecting heroin cul 
ting rooms in large buildings. 

Heroin inside rooms, Miss Powe, 
explained, has a chemical effect ufj 
on the "sniffer" carried by officel 
in hallways, enabling the officials t! 
find sites where the narcotic is bein| 
"cut", or mixed, with other matd 
rials before being sold to users. ' 

The sniffer also works for cocaini 
and morphine, said Miss Powel 
who also worked on a project fc 
detecting opium.

I'ho's Who: 
Honoring The Elite 

Thirty-eight Eastern seniors who

PE Students: 

Helping The Retarded 

While gaining skills in their vari- 
ous fields, several EKU physical 
education students are involved in 
helping the mentally retarded of 
Madison County, working through 
either of two projects, the "Fun- 
rama" and the "Aquatic Project." 

Students involved are members 
of Physical Education for the Ex- 
ceptional Individual class, and they 
have their choice of working with 
either project. Both projects are 
under the supervision of Dr. 
Dorothy Harkins, Associate Profes- 
sor of Physical Education. 

The Fun-rama, in its third year at 
Eastern, is held four times each se- 
mester on Saturday afternoons from 
2-4 p.m. in the Weaver Gymnasium. 
Approximately 50 to 60 mentally 
retarded children of all ages from 
the Madison County area attend the 
sessions, and some have come from 
as far as Danville to attend. The 
last Fun-rama for this semester was 
held November 11, but they have 
resumed this semester. 

The aim of the Fun-rama is to 
give college students experience in 
learning to work with mentally re- 
tarded children. But, through the 
program, the children also increase 
their developmental capacity in 
certain areas. 

In the Fun-rama each student 



takes a certain area of development 
to teach to the children, and a dif- 
ferent student is in charge of each 
program. Some of the skills taught 
are ball activities, rhythms, balanc- 
ing activities, and the use of the 
trampoline and obstacle course. 

According to Dr. Harkins, "It's 
quite a task for the students. Some- 
times they don't know what to do 
first. They don't always succeed, 
but it's a good opportunity to 
learn." She added that, "It's also a 
good opportunity for the children to 
come and learn activities and to 
learn how to adapt." 

There has been good response 
from everyone concerned with the 
program. Parents and administra- 
tors have been very cooperative and 
the schools have provided transpor- 
tation for the students, busing them 
to and from the sessions. 

The Aquatic Project differs from 
the Fun-rama, offering individual- 
ized instruction in water activities 
for mentally retarded children. Each 
student takes one child and works 
to meet the special needs of that 
child. He decides what the child's 
problem is, whether it is overcom- 
ing a fear of water or teaching him 
how to swim, and he works toward 
helping him overcome it. 

The problem may be physical, 
which would involve helping the 
child increase his water skills, or it 
could be a social problem, where 
the student will work toward help- 
ing the child become a more com- 
municative person. In the latter 
situation, the water is only inciden- 
tal in solving the child's problem. 

This year the Aquatic Project is 
working with children from EKU's 
School of Hope. Previously, they 
had worked each year with cerebral 
palsy children. The sessions are 
held each Friday from 8-9 a.m. in 
the Weaver Pool. 

According to Dr. Harkins, the 
Aquatic Project differs from the 
Fun-rama in that the students work- 
ing with the Fun-rama work in their 
special areas, but in the Aquatic 
Project, they work toward the spe- 
cial needs of the children.

ROTC Seniors: 

Distinguished Students 

Ten Kentucky seniors in the Re- 
serve Officers Training Corps at 
Eastern have been designated "dis- 
tinguished military students." Four 
out-of-staters were also named. 

Colonel Wolfred K. White, pro- 
fessor of military science, said that 
to be eligible for this honor a cadet 
must be a senior, rank in the upper 
one-third of his military science 
class and the upper one-half of his 
graduating class, and desire a career 
in the U.S. Army. 

He also must be recommended 
by the military science professor 
and approved by the president of 
the university, said White, who pre- 
sented the distinguished military 
student decorations. 

The honored cadets are John P. 
Hicks, Jr., Ft. Mitchell; Rex De- 
Armand Fortner, Florence; Michael 
Cain, Brandenburg; Stephen Paul

The Veterans: 
Back To School 

To get Vietnam war veterans to 
attend school under the CI Bill of 
Rights is the aim of a special pro- 
gram at Eastern. 

Eastern is using a federal HEW 
grant of $75,000 to conduct the 
statewide Veterans Upward Bound 
and Talent Search program. 

"We're attempting to get as many 
unemployed veterans as possible to 
go to school," said Tom Sexton, di- 
rector of the program. 

"This means high school, voca- 
tional school, and two-year com- 
munity and junior colleges, as well 
as four-year colleges and universi- 
ties," Sexton said. 

The program is designed to assist 
the veteran to enter the institution 
of his choice. 

Besides Sexton, the staff of the 
program consists of Mike Cunning- 
ham, academic vocational advisor, 
two full-time recruiters, and a num- 




Second Lt. Daniel ). Baur has been selected 
"the most outstanding" of all ROTC gradu- 
ates in the First United States Army. Baur, 
a native of Athens, Ohio, graduated from 
Eastern last May with a BS in business 
management and was commissioned a 
lieutenant of armor. He graduated from

The staff members will go to all 
of Kentucky's counties and talk with 
veterans and with local government, 
civic, and business officials and 
leaders. 

These people are also invited to 
call the program's office at Room 
415, Jones Building on the EKU 
campus, telephone 622-3742, Sex- 
ton said. 

James Mason: 

Spending A Cool Summer 

An Eastern senior, James Mason, 
of Paint Lick (Madison County), 
spent the summer on an Alaskan 
glacier as part of a scientific ex- 
pedition. 

The group of about 50 campers 
was sent to Alaska by Michigan State 
University in its Juneau Ice Field Re- 
search Program. Mason is a geology 
major at Eastern, studying to be a 
field geologist. 

The expedition contained mem- 
bers from different branches of 
science, including geology, meteor- 
ology, and biology. 

The scientists studied ablation or 
melting of the glaciers and corre- 



lated the influence of the weatljr 
on this melting. Mason was m 
concerned with studying the be 
rock, the petrology and geology 
the nunmataks, islands of re 
which protrude from the glacit 
(Nunmatak is a Greenland Eskir 
word.) 

He accompanied the expediti 
under a scholarship from Michig 
State for which he qualified 
being a biology major and havi} 
studied morphology, the science jf 
land forms. 

He said the purpose of the <• 
pedition was to give the studei; 
the opportunity to study glaciers p 
a field situation and live in a carb 
environment. The scientists wel; 
on the glacier, about 20 miles frcn 
Juneau, from late June until the l.|t 
week in August.

Faculty and Staff 



Francesco Scorsone: 
Riding On Air 

An Eastern professor is helping 
the United States and several other 
countries design transportation sys- 
tems to shuttle passengers faster be- 
tween cities and also between cities 
and outlying airports. 

Dr. Francesco G. Scorsone, pro- 
fessor of mathematics, says he and 
other scientists have been cooper- 
ating in experiments on guided air 
cushion vehicles for about four 
years. 

His work on what he calls "the 
transportation of the future" has 
taken him this fall to Washington, 
D.C., and to Palermo, Italy, where 
he was born. 

I If you ask him about his part in 
developing air cushion travel, the 
conversation will not lag — although 
lie gives most of the credit to the 
scientists working with him. He 
may pull a newspaper clipping 
about a proposed fast shuttle sys- 
tem from his billfold, or hand you a 
echnical manual, three inches thick, 
^vhich he happens to have at his 
fingertips. "I am never very far 
away from this work," he says. 

He contributed much of the data 
m the manual, which is an engineer- 
ing study of high speed ground 
transportation systems (tracked air 
cushion vehicles) prepared by the 
(J.S. Department of Transportation. 
'His trip to Washington was to meet 
ivith officials of this department, 
Tiembers of the Italian embassy, 
and staff members of the National 
Science Foundation. 
. On his trip to Italy, he represented 
•:he N.S.F. at the University of Pa- 
ermo, which is experimenting with 
lir cushion vehicles, and presented 
ii paper on "High Speed Transpor- 
ation" at an international confer- 
ence at the University's Instituto di 
\eronautica, where he had earned 
.lis Ph.D. in physics and mathe- 
Tiatics. 

Dr. Scorsone often mentions the 

high honor and credit" due to his 

:olleagues in Italy, Dr. Ennio Mat-

tioli, director of the Instituto di 
Aeronautica and professor of aero- 
dynamics, and Dr. Giovanni Lan- 
zara, associate professor of tech- 
nique and economy of air transpor- 
tation, both at the University of 
Palermo. 

The research of Dr. Scorsone and 
these two scientists is being utilized 
by the government of Italy in de- 
veloping a guided air cushion 
vehicle system in that country. A 
third experimental vehicle, capable 
of 150 miles an hour, has been built 
in Palermo. Under construction is 
a one-mile concrete guideway, or 
channel, for the vehicles. 

Dr. Scorsone says the immediate 
interest in this kind of travel (an 
electrically propelled vehicle — LIM 
— levitated about an inch off the 
surface of an U-shaped concrete 
guideway with a steady blast of air 
from on-board jet compressors) 
centers in the need to shuttle pas- 
sengers swiftly between cities and 
nearby airports. But he foresees 
many of these routes being built to 
connect metropolitan areas, with 
vehicles of the future capable of 
speeds up to 450 m.p.h. 

The U.S. Transportation Depart- 
ment has tentative plans for several 
such shuttle systems and more im- 
mediate plans for a system between 
suburban Washington and outlying 



Dulles International Airport. 

Dr. Scorsone's research has in- 
volved general consultation and co- 
ordination with other scientists. He 
presently is working with Dr. John 
Deacon and Dr. John Hutchinson, 
professors of civil engineering, at 
University of Kentucky engineering 
laboratories. 

Dr. Scorsone says he is proud to 
be listed as a representative from 
Eastern at the various national and 
international meetings of scientists 
to which his work in air cushion 
vehicles takes him. He says his re- 
search has not curtailed his class- 
room work in mathematics. 

He came to Eastern in 1965 after 
serving as professor of mathematics 
at Hartwick College, Oneonta, N.Y., 
from 1960-65. From 1948 to 1959, 
he was director of the General Bel- 
grano Technical Institute and of 
Rocco & Scorsone, an industrial 
firm, in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He 
is a naturalized American citizen.

THE EASTERN KENTUCKY UNIVERSITY ALUMNUS 



Sports 



Wally Chambers: 
A 250-pound Halfback 

Wally Chambers is easy to pick 
out on the football field. 

He's the 6-6, 250-pound defen- 
sive lineman who runs with the 
speed of a halfback, (4.8 in the 
forty-yard dash). 

Opposing quarterbacks have 
nightmares about his ability to block 
attempted passes or throw them for 
painful losses. Their respect is evi- 
dent when they run plays to the 
opposite side of the field from Big 
Wally. 

His teammates share the oppo- 
nents' respect as they voted him 
defensive captain for the 1972 sea- 
son. And, he has lived up to their 
expectations again as he led the 
team in tackles and assists for the 
third consecutive year. 

The All-American rating services 
were obviously aware of Wally's tal- 
ent as Time Magazine selected him 
on its All-American Defensive First- 
Team. Said Time, "Though players 
from these schools (Eastern,) might 
ordinarily be classified as 'sleepers'; 
j no pro scout worth his binoculars 
I could possibly overlook this impos- 
ing pair. (Chambers and John 
Matuszak of Tampa) Chambers is 
rated as 'a natural' who will 'equal- 
ize' his lack of college competition 
within the first two weeks of train- 
ing camp." 

One of Time's scouts reported, 

"What can you say about a huge 

roughneck who is fast enough to 

: overhaul running backs downfield? 

He may be the first pick." 

Wally also received Honorable 
Mention on the Associated Press 
All-American Team and made the 
, second team of the National Editori- 
al Association's All-American team.

and participated in the Senior 

WINTER, 1972 




Wally Chambers 
Time's All-American 



Bowl Game in Mobile, Alabama, on 
January 6. 

Professional scouts are also aware 
of his ability. Twenty-seven scouts 
were on hand during spring drills 
to take a closer look at Chambers. 
Their opinion must have filtered 
through the ranks as the September 
issue of The Sporting News ranked 
Chambers as one of the nation's 
top four defensive tackles. Accord- 
ing to the publication, he was given 
a 1.5 rating by professional scouts, 
midway between a 1.0 immediate 
pro starter rating and a 2.0 will 
make squad classification. 

Eastern head coach, Roy Kidd, 
believes Chambers is for real. "If 
we ever had an All-American, Wally 
Chambers has got to be one," he 
says. Eastern has had 10 such Ail- 
Americans in its 50-year history in 
football. 

The pro scouts share Coach 
Kidd's enthusiasm for the big senior 
from Mt. Clemens, Michigan. 

Pete Brown of the Cincinnati 
Bengals says, "I feel strongly that 
Wally will be a first round draft 
choice. He has all the qualities 
necessary to play pro football suc- 
cessfully for the team that is for- 
tunate enough to get him. He's a 
very strong, agile and mobile foot- 
ball player; he certainly deserves 
recognition." 



A Dallas Cowboy scout, Charlie 
Mackey, expresses similar senti- 
ments. "He has all the things we 
look for: great size, he's very strong 
and he runs well. He's a very active 
defensive lineman. We are very 
interested in the young man. I 
think he has a future in professional 
football." 

The honors have already come 
Wally's way, but others figure to be 
just a matter of time. He's made 
AII-OVC honors, led the team in 
tackles, been voted the team's most 
valuable defensive lineman ... all 
the honors that come from being a 
defensive tackle. 

Spring Sports: 
Played In The Fall 

Three of Eastern's spring sports 
teams — baseball, golf and tennis — 
played fall schedules in an attempt 
to get ready for the spring season. 

Coach Jack Hissom's baseball 
team compiled an 8-9 record last 
fall as all-OVC third baseman Ken 
Blewitt and junior centerfielder 
Dave Theiler led the way. Blewitt, 
although playing with an injured 
knee, topped Colonel hitters with 
his .450 average, while Theiler led 
the team in hits (20), doubles (6), 
runs scored (11), home runs (3) and 
batted .363. 

EKU posted a 1-5 conference rec- 
ord which will count toward this 
spring's divisional champion. Three 
of these five losses were by only one 
run. 

Coach Glenn Presnell's golf team 
participated in four tournaments last 
fall with a fourth place showing in 
the EKU Fall Invitational and a fifth 
place finish in the Murray State In- 
vitational to their credit. 

The golfers were led by senior 
Tom Scott, juniors Roc Irey and Dan 
Nicolet and freshmen Dave Ryan, 
Dan Bogdan and Dennis Reilly. 

First-year tennis coach Tom Hig- 
gins directed his team to a 2-1 rec- 
ord and a third place finish in the 
University of Cincinnati Tennis 
Classic.

factures the product, says it works by 
applying it to the face of the wood clubs. 
When the club strikes the ball, the friction 
between club and ball is reduced to less 
than 1/10 of one percent. This in turn re- 
duces the spin of the ball and adds dis- 
tance to the shot.

President Martin Gives, 
Receives Honors at AASCU 



PRESIDENT ROBERT R. MARTIN was on the giving and receiving 
end of recognition at the American Association of State Colleges and 
Universities annual meeting at Washington, D. C, in mid-November. 

In his capacity as AASCU president, he presented the organiza- 
tion's first Distinguished Alumnus Award to former President Lyndon 
Baines Johnson. Under doctor's orders not to travel, LBJ could not 
be present to accept the honor. It was received on his behalf by his 
daughter Mr. Lynda Robb. President Johnson is a graduate of South- 
west (Texas) State Teachers College (now a university) of San Marcos, 
Texas. 

During the ceremonies at which he passed the presidential gavel 
to incoming president Harold Hyde, he was presented a silver bowl 
in appreciation of his service to AASCU by Darrell Holmes, the 
organization's past president. 

Dr. Holmes recognized Dr. Martin as a "man of action . . . who 
served this association with great distinction." 

"His adept and skillful handling of meetings, his ability to dele- 
gate, his understanding of people — the human processes — have 
brought the Association this year of a new level of accomplishment 
and maturity . . .", Dr. Holmes said.

SUMMER 1973/VOLUME 12 NO. 2 



Alumnus Editorial 



One Hundred Candles On The Cake 



A CENTENNIAL YEAR of higher 
education will be observed on 
the Eastern Kentucky LJniverslty 
campus during the 1973-74 aca- 
demic year. Amid the hoopla that 
will accompany this grand ob- 
servance, we should not let the 
meaning of a centennial become 
obscured and pass us by. 

People get excited over the 
commemoration of a century, and 
for good reason. To the progres- 
sive minded, milestones, goals 
reached or surpassed, and anni- 
versaries of worthy Institutions 
are notable events. And, perhaps 
no other such occasion has the 
significance of a centennial. 

In the instance of an Institution 
of higher education the observ- 
ance of a centennial signals a cer- 
tain durability, as if the ability to 
endure is a token of the institu- 
tion's worth. In other words, It Is 
no accident that the tradition of 
higher education begun In 1874 
with the founding of Central Uni- 
versity, continued by Walter's 
Collegiate Institute, and perpetu- 
ated by Eastern Kentucky Univer- 



sity, has remained unbroken for 
100 years. 

Such a record would have been 
unachievable had not Eastern and 
her predecessors been answering 
a public need. And this leads to 
perhaps the most important rea- 
son for observing a centennial. 

A centennial is a time for re- 
commitment of the University. It 
Is a time for the consolidation of 
the gains and achievements of 
the last 100 years. It Is a time to 
examine the past and learn from 
its mistakes and emulate its suc- 
cesses. And, It is a time to insure 
that the University has not lost 
sight of Its direction and purpose 
— the providing of quality, low 
cost public higher education to 
the young people of the Com- 
monwealth. 

As President Martin has said on 
more than one occasion, "If we 
cease to do the job we were 
founded for, if we become a 
Harvard, or a Yale, or some other 
type of institution, then the Com- 
monwealth of Kentucky will have 
to start another university to do 



the job we are supposed to be 
doing." 

It is particularly fitting that the 
centennial year Is also the year in 
which the institution is scheduled 
for an intensive self-study in 
preparation for visitation teams 
from the Southern Association of 
Colleges and Schools and the Na- 
tional Council For Accreditation 
of Teacher Education, major ac- 
crediting associations. 

Alumni will play an important 
role in the centennial year. It is 
during the 1973-74 year that the 
Chapel of Meditation, financed 
through the Alumni Century 
Fund, will officially be presented 
as a gift to the University. 

And, in these times when it is 
growing increasingly important 
for graduates to speak up for 
alma mater, to help recruit the 
good student and be the Univer- 
sity's ambassadors, the centennial 
year can be added to that long 
list of valid "bragging" points of 
which Eastern graduates can be 
proud.

SUMMER, 1973 



Notes . . . From The Editor's Desk 



EVERYONE INVOLVED in the 

Alumni Century Fund drive to build 
the Chapel of Meditation — cam- 
paign workers and contributors 
alike — went about the task as a 
labor of love. We were convinced 
that our project would provide a 
desirable facility and service on the 
modern University campus. 

But, perhaps none of us realized 
how needed the Chapel of Medita- 
tion was. It is only now, after a full 
year of using the Chapel, that we 
can gauge its impact on the Uni- 
versity Community. University 
Chaplain George Nordgulen, in a 
narrative beginning on page 20, re- 
ports the data and personal impres- 
sions that reflect the Chapel's first 
year of use. 

While widespread acceptance 
and utilization of the Chapel had 
been expected, no one was quite 
prepared for the influx of individu- 
al students, student organizations, 
and marriages that marked the first 
year of its use. To say the initial 
response to the Chapel has been 
gratifying would be an understate- 
ment of the highest degree. 

Century Club members, or any 
contributors to the fund drive that 
built the Chapel, need only to read 
Dr. Nordgulen's report to be as- 
sured of the project's ultimate 
worth. 

— EKU — 



AS THE ALUMNI Association has 
continued to grow, we have been 
searching for benefits for active 
members of the association. 



One of these services for active 
members is announced in this issue. 
Your Alumni Association, in coop- 
eration with the University Press of 
Kentucky, is offering selected books 
released by the Press at a savings of 
30 per cent off bookstore prices. 

EKU alumni will be especially in- 
terested in the volume, Kentucky 
Birds, a recent release that is co- 
authored by A. L. Whitt, an Eastern 
professor of biology. Several other 
Eastern faculty members have works 
in progress with the Press. 

Active membership could soon 
mean much more in terms of com- 
munication with Eastern. Rising 
printing and mailing costs may soon 
make it impossible to continue 
mailing copies of the magazine and 
newsletter to any but active alumni. 

It has been several years since the 
honor roll of active Alumni Asso- 
ciation members has been pub- 
lished. We are planning to print 
the honor roll in an alumni publica- 
tion this fall, including graduation 
class and present location of the ac- 
tive membership. 

Surely, you will not want to be 
missing from the 1973 Honor Roll. 

— EKU — 



HOMECOMING PREPARATIONS are 

well underway and preliminary in- 
dications are that this will be one 
that alumni will not want to miss. 
The theme will center around the 
University's Centennial observance. 
"A Century of Memories" will be 
the unifying idea behind this year's 
floats and decorations and alumni 



in attendance can expect to reap , 
wealth of memories and new ex 
periences. 

— EKU — 

THE FAMILY OF EKU alumni con 
tinues to grow by leaps and bounds 
At this spring's commencement ex 
ercises, 1,842 candidates filed acros; 
the Alumni Coliseum stage to re 
ceive their diplomas from Coverno 
Wendell Ford. They made the tola] 
number of degree recipients ir 
Eastern history a whopping 25,876 

It is interesting to note that Presi- 
dent Martin has conferred more de- 
grees in his 13 years as Eastern'; 
chief executive than did his prede- 
cessors combined. Dr. Martin ha; 
conferred 17,451 degrees here, ar 
indication both of the institution's 
growth, and of the fact that we have 
a tremendous number of youthfu 
alumni. 

Commencement was the climax 
of another memorable Alumnij 
Weekend. The weatherman gave 
us a break from the cold, rainy seiz- 
ure that had gripped the area, andi 
alumni responded by flocking to thej 
campus for the traditional reunions, 
luncheons, banquets and other fes- 
tivities. You can note from thei 
number of people who attended re- 
union (pages 10 and 11) that interest 
was high in Alumni Day this year, 
and rightly so. 

For those of you who could not 
attend, the weekend is covered in 
this issue of the magazine. Your 
attention is especially directed to 
the reprint of Dean Mary Ingels 
wonderfully nostalgic Alumni Ban- 
quet speech on page 12. i?

ALUMNI 
WEEKEND 

A FOUNTAIN OF MEMORIES 



By RON G. WOLFE 

THE UNIVERSITY CENTER Foun- 
tain bubbled Friday afternoon 
at the thought of Alumni Week- 
end. The annual Senior Luncheon 
was over and the newest grads had 
gone their separate ways to await 
their final hour of triumph Sunday 
afternoon. 

Meanwhile, in the motels around 
Richmond, alumni were returning 
to celebrate class reunions and visit 
with old friends. 

One motel desk clerk issued a 
plea for campus maps after several 
visiting grads and parents found 
themselves lost in a maze of build- 
ings. As one graduate told the 
clerk, "I've been up there and I 
don't recognize a thing!" 

Two '09 graduates were winding 
ind winging their separate ways to 
Richmond to see the campus again, 
eslie Anderson and Clarence H. 
jifford came back although neither 
lad a reunion; each, however, has 
/owed to outlive the other as both 
ipproach their 70-year class re- 
jnion.

Veekend. Returning graduates and their 
;uests boarded University buses to see the 
normous changes that have taken place 
n the campus over the past years. 

UMMER, 1973 



Mr. Anderson and his wife drove 
for two days from Texarkana, Texas, 
to be around for the festivities. He 
had to take off work in his pros- 
perous insurance business to make 
it although he doesn't do that very 
often. For 62 years he's been on 
the job full-time, having missed 
'nary' a day because of sickness. 

Mr. Gifford returned via the air- 
ways, and despite a late plane, he 
arrived with his usual enthusiasm 
for the annual get-together. He's 
still working, too, in his mortgage 
corporation in Katonah, New York. 

Four other 60-year graduates 
were also making plans closer to 
home. Mrs. Elizabeth Bertram of 
Vanceburg, Miss Alma Lake of 
Berea, Mrs. B. L. Murphy of Athens, 
and Mrs. Allie Hendren Wheeler of 
Lexington were all ready for Satur- 
day and the recognition that was 
duly theirs. Only Mrs. Wheeler had 
to cancel at the last minute due to 
illness. 

In every sense of the term, Satur- 
day was A-Day. The morning regis- 
tration brought scores of old friends 
back together after years of separa- 
tion. There was the usual year- 
book signing, back slapping, and 
that old Milestone picture attached 
to the badges. Above all, there was 
the warmth of old friends, a kind of 
sadness that made many wonder 
why they hadn't made these recol- 
lections years before. 



For the Dynamic Duo, Anderson 
and Gifford, Saturday morning 
meant an extensive tour of the 
campus with appropriate stops 
wherever a memory hid itself. 

They poured over some old 
memorabilia in the Alumni House 
and matched names and pictures of 
classmates long since gone. They 
were impressed with the rolling 
green of Arlington, and the deceiv- 
ing size of the Begiey Building and 
Hanger Field. A stop at the Jane 
Campbell Building presently under 
construction was a special one for 
Mr. Gifford, since the theater in 
that building is to bear his name. 

Other memories hid in Ellendale 
Hail, once a majestic farmhouse and 
now a counseling center, as Mr. 
Gifford recalled the days when he 
lived there and surveyed the vast 
expanses around it which now sup- 
port expanding academe. 

Both remembered the Ravine and 
all the stories that go along with it, 
many as slanted as the walkways 
that lead into and out of its lush 
slopes. And, both were awed with 
the By-Pass, the Gold Coast that has 
sprung up over the past five years. 
"The cows would find very little 
grazing there now," one main- 
tained. 

A short ride downtown found 
them amazed that the old Glyndon 
Hotel was very much the same, and 
both tried in vain to find the Benault 




Mr. Charence H. Gifford, '09, one of the 
remaining charter Pioneers, enjoyed his 
Sunday morning breakfast (top) with East- 
ern's First Lady, Mrs. Anne Martin. Earlier 
on Saturday during a tour of the campus, 
he stopped to inspect the Jane Campbell 
Building, presently under construction, 
which will house an auditorium bearing 
his name. 



Inn, an historic Richmond restau- 
rant razed in favor of a more mod- 
ern Federal Building. It was at the 
Inn that both helped form the Pio- 
neers, that group of graduates from 
the first four classes who engaged 
in their own kind of camaraderie. 
Of the original charter members, 
only Anderson and Gifford are left 
along with the Sweetheart of the 



Pioneers (SHOP), Mrs. Mary Frances 
Richards. 

For both, the old University 
Building, since renovated but still 
standing defiantly old in the midst 
of the new, evoked the greatest 
sense of pleasure. As Mr. Anderson 
put it, "We did everything in that 
building; we lived there, we went 
to class there, and we held our 
graduation there." 

Also a part of their tour was the 
Chapel of Meditation where both 
window shopped for familiar names 
on the bronze plaques below the 
magnificent stained glass, and both 
enjoyed a chat with the University 
Chaplain, Dr. George Nordgulen. 

The weather was brisk and beau- 
tiful, much like the horseplay that 



the two enjoyed with each othe 
and with friends. Mr. A razzed Mt; 
G a bit because he, by virtue o] 
being an Anderson, received thi| 
first public diploma from Easterni 
Mr. G resigned himself to being ij 
Gifford and maintained that he'd 
think about that when he returnee 
for his 70-year reunion as the lasj 
representative of the '09 class. 

As things now stand, Mr. Ander 
son is Mr. Gifford's senior by twc 
years, but after little observation, i 
is more than very obvious that both 
could very well be back in 1979. 

Meanwhile, the 1913, 1923, 1933 
1948, and 1958 classes registerec 
and prepared for their reunion 
luncheons where each, in a shor* 
biographical speech, was responsi-

ittempts to recall what time had 
done for them. 

I There were comments about the 
:ampus. "What did they ever do 
vith Vets Village?" "It's now Martin 
ball's parking lot." "And Hanger 
itadium, where did it go?" "You're 
landing on the 50-yard line right 
ow!" 

'Kodaks' enjoyed a busy day as 
iiyriad snapshots recorded the day 
I3r later recollection. Some went 
|owling in the Powell Building and 
'larveled at the facilities. "They've 
ven got a barber shop; I wonder if 



anybody uses it!" Others crowded 
around the football and pool tables 
in the Powell recreation room and 
became kids again for one fun-filled 
afternoon. 

For the more serious students of 
reuniting, an afternoon campus tour 
via University buses included a 
panoramic look at the town and 
campus from atop Commonwealth 
Hall, the tallest building on campus. 
Even from that lofty perch, it was 
still hard to conceive the enormity 
of the change. 

The celebration went on into the 
evening. A reception hosted by 
President and Mrs. Robert R. Martin 
brought the grads back in a more 
formal setting. This time it was 
back in the Johnson Building, a

The Board of Regents had met 
earlier in the day to make major 
reorganization decisions and some 
had stayed on to visit with the re- 
union classes and attend the ban- 
quet. (See page 48.) 

The banquet was the usual kind 
of nostalgic elegance. Dr. Donald 
Henrickson sang, and the reunion 
certificates and pins were given to 
those who attended.

Lee Thomas Mills, '57, Incoming president of the EKU Alumni 
Association, enjoys a laugh with returning grads before he 
introduces the 1973 Outstanding Alumnus. Ken McCarty 
(above right) president elect of the Alumni Association scans 
his program before the meal. Two outstanding alumni, 
C. H. Gifford, '09, and Karl D. Bays, '55, enjoy a social hour 
at the home of a friend before the annual banquet. 




In the midst of it all, Dean Mary 
K. Ingels, Dean of Women, de- 
livered a thoughtful address despite 
her warning that she wasn't a 
speai<er. Her pointed remarks made 
the roast beef taste a bit better to 
those who respect rational admin- 
istration. And, the big announce- 
ment of the evening: Karl D. Bays, 
'55, was honored as the 1973 Out- 
standing Alumnus, recognition long 
rumored and certainly deserved. 

Five other Outstanding Alumnus 
recipients were present to hear the 
credentials that Bays had earned 
over his years with the American 
Hospital Supply Corporation. Dr. 
Martin, '34; T. K. Stone, '29; C. H. 
Gifford, '09; Ira Bell, '28; and 
Mitchell Denham, '34, posed for 
pictures following the banquet; six 



graduates who had earned the high- 
est tribute Eastern could pay. 

Earlier in the day, five other 
graduates had received awards for 
their efforts in coming to the oc- 
casion. Watercolor prints of campus 
buildings were presented to those 
with the largest family present and 
to those who had traveled farthest 
to get to Richmond. 

Three Floridians received prints 
for the greatest distance traveled. 
Zylphia Lewis, '33, of Clearwater; 
Paul Bunton, '48, of Tampa; and 
Nancy Ross, '58, of Ft. Lauderdale, 
brought their own kind of sunshine 
to the celebration. 

Lena White, '48, and Winfred 
Sizemore, '58, both received recog- 
nition for bringing their families of 
four each to the annual affair. 



The Sunday morning Giffordj 
Breakfast for the old timers pro-i 
vided an informal tete-a-tete where! 
the Pioneers and some of theirj 
friends philosophized over countryi 
ham and all the trimmings. In thej 
regal Regents Room, the history | 
makers had one last fling at thej 
weekend and one last opportunity, 
to tell their stories. 

After this fete, some went on to 
the graduation exercises; most 
made preparation for the trip home. 

Baccalaureate and Commence- 
ment attracted the usual record 
crowds. 

Along with some 11,000 others,

[auline Park Knapp, distinguished

grees for their service to the state 
and to the University. 

Then the parade of graduates 
started, nearly 2,000 strong. Irvin 
A. Brown, Troy, Ohio, was the first 
across the coliseum stage. For him, 
it was a Specialist in Education 
graduate degree. 

A short halt at Barbara Jane 
Walker of Goose Rock, made note 
of the fact that she represented the 
25,000th graduate of Eastern. A few 
pictures for publicity purposes, and 
the trek continued.

like several others, graduated in De- 



cember but waited until May 13 to 
get his degree officially; and the last 
name on the program, Craig Elliott 
Stratton of Lawrenceburg who 
waited longer than anyone else on 
this day to get his degree. 

Then, there was the rush to re- 
turn the caps and gowns and to buy 
the tassels that will undoubtedly 
hang around a few automobile mir- 
rors and then adorn some obscure 
photo albums only to fade with the 
memories of the four years and the 
weekend. 

The pageantry and all its meaning 
for the thousands who came to see 
the beginning, the end, and the 
continuation of special memories, 
was over. Sunday evening . . . the 
fountain continued to bubble at the 
thought of Alumni Weekend.

DEAN MARY K. INGELS, '37, RECALLS OLD TIMES AT ALUMNI BANQUET 



%A/ HEN invited to have some- 
* ' tiling to say on this occasion, 
I accepted with great alacrity. No 
sooner had I committed myself 
than I began to get cold feet. I have 
been feeling much the same as the 
young lady must have felt when she 
came to my office to ask to change 
rooms. This was back several years 
ago when it was necessary to have 
three occupants in some rooms. This 
particular young lady whom I hap- 
pened to know very well was a born 
procrastinator. She had been very, 
very late in making an application 
for housing. Because of this she was 
one of those who was assigned to 
room with two other women. She 
accepted the situation with good 
grace, and I heard nothing from her 
until we were two or three weeks 
into the semester. Then just as we 
were getting ready to leave the of- 
fice on a Friday afternoon, in she 
dashed, completely out of breath — 
"Miss Ingels, you know those two 
girls you put me with?" she asked. 
"No, I don't" I answered. "Well," 
she said "six or maybe even a half 
dozen people have told me that 
those girls have loose morals. And 
you know me. Miss Ingels, I'm no 
leader." 

Whether or not you know me, let 
me say I'm no speaker, and had I 
been able to concoct as good a 
reason as that young lady had, I 
think I should have been tempted 
to use it. But I couldn't, so here I 
am promising nothing except to be 
brief. 

Paraphrasing Shakespeare, I pose 
the question "Who is Eastern, What 
is she that all who know her love 
her?" If perhaps you have never 
tried to answer that question, let us 
for the next few minutes focus our 
attention on some truths from which 
you can formulate your own con- 
clusions. 

My own association with Eastern 
is, like Caesar's Caul, divided into 
three parts. The first, the four years 
I spent here as a student. The 
second, the time when I was just an 
interested alumna and a sometime 



summer school graduate student. 
And the third, these past twelve 
years that 1 have spent as a member 
of the faculty and staff. Now, it 
doesn't require any great knowledge 
of higher mathematics for you to 
calculate very quickly that those 
three periods cover a rather long 
span of time, and I proudly admit 
that my love affair with Eastern all 
started in the fall of 1932. 

In the current worlds of fashion 
and entertainment Nostalgia is an 
"in" word, so to be in style let's 
think back to those good old days. 

To know what Eastern was then, 
it is, I think, necessary to recall what 
the world was then. Remember the 
politics of that era? In Asia, japan 
invaded China. In Germany, a 
house painter was advocating pol- 
icies and gathering a following that 
would engulf most of the globe in 
World War II. Here at home, after 
the disappointment of the Hoover 
Administration the people chose 
Franklin Roosevelt to be the Presi- 
dent. Women's Lib by another name 
made it possible for a Mrs. Hattie 
Caraway from Arkansas to become 
the first woman elected to the U.S. 
Senate. No one over 40 can fail to 
remember that economically we 
were in the depths of a great 
financial depression — we were all in 
the same condition — poor as church 
mice, but fortunately for most of 
us, we didn't know it. 

And in those "good old days of 
1932" we had sensational headlines. 
There was the Bonus March On 
Washington, the kidnapping of the 
Lindbergh baby which outraged the 
entire world, and a solo flight across 
the Atlantic gained a place in his- 
tory for Amelia Erhart Putman. 

Socially, it was a time without 
most of the conveniences now con- 
sidered necessities. There wasn't 
even one car in every garage, there 
were plenty of parking spaces. Most 
of the homes in the rural com- 
munities were without central heat- 
ing and indoor plumbing and they 
were still using kerosene for il- 
lumination. There was no television 



mzzzzsz. 






12ZZZZZ222ZZZZZZ. 



and the phenomena of going steady 
at the age of 14 or 15 was still in the 
future. 

For those who liked to read, the 
best seller list included John Cals- 
worthy's Forsythe Saga and Pearl 
Buck's Good Earth. The radio and 
the movies were the popular media 
of entertainment. Remember The 
Little Theatre Off Times Square? 
Personally, those dramas were more 
satisfying than those we see on T.V. 
today, for I always rather enjoyed 
setting the stage, and being my own 
costume designer. On the silver 
screen, stars whose names still com- 
mand attention were just beginning 
their long careers. Calvacade was 
chosen best picture of the year, and 
I still remember a story that got 
circulated about it. An Englishman 
wanted to make a visit abroad, and 
because he thought there would be 
no language barrier, he decided to 
come to the United States. In New 
York he went to Times Square. There 
going around the Times Building 
was the latest news. Looking up he 
read "C-A-L-V-A-C-A-D-E pro- 
nounced success." He just shook his 
head and booked passage on the 
next boat bound for England. 

Such then was the background 
for what Eastern was in 1932. As the 
Coke ad proclaims, most of us who 
came here had been "raised on 
country sunshine" and it didn't take 
much to impress us. Everything is 
relative they say, and in relation to 
our small high schools. Eastern was 
big. Ten buildings, if I remember 
correctly, formed a kind of horse- 
shoe around what is now called the 
Ravine. And then there was Weaver 
Health Building 'way off in the boon 
docks. There were accommodations 
for 478 women and fewer men in 
the three dormitories that then 
existed. During the six years that I 
was an undergraduate the only 
building addition was Hanger 
Stadium for which the students 
donated the cement. When it was 
razed a few years ago. I watched 
it come down with just the slightest 
twinge of regret.

THE EASTERN KENTUCKY UNIVERSITY ALUMNUS 



>^w/y/y/y//'/iy/'/'/ty/y//vy<y/>y>y>^^^ 



Back in those days there was no 
tuition charged residents of Ken- 
tucky (out of state students paid 
$27), and a student with $100 had 
money left after he had registered 
and bought his books for a semester. 
Registration, by the way, included 
paying for five $5 mealticket books. 
The catalog stated that meals 
averaged $4.50 a week, but as I 
' remember it, two books would get 
I one through three weeks. 

Students today complain about 
the process of registration, but if 
' we used the system that was used 
: then, registration would probably 
take the better part of a semester. 
There was no such thing as Fresh- 
man Orientation, no guides to lead 
' a freshman around by the hand, and 
'no advisors to counsel them. The 
' procedure was outlined in the 
catalog and a student was on his 
own. It was during my first expe- 
rience in this process that I learned 
that Eastern was a friendly college — 
later at assemblies — compulsory, and 
held three times a week, by the 
'way, the then President never failed 
to inform us that this is a friendly 
college and a cultural institution. 
I The catalog for 1932 listed 75 
'faculty members — 15 of whom held 
the earned doctorate degree. Long 
ago I forgot, or time has made 
obsolete most of what I learned 
'from books, but time will never 
erase the memory of many of the 
'instructors. Especially clear after al- 
'most four decades is the memory 
of: 



A biology teacher — who instilled 
a genuine love for learning and 
broadened one's range of interests 
by his insistence on his students 
taking advantage of all the cultural 
programs that were brought to 
campus; 

A psychology professor who in 
her own eccentric ways brought her 
students into contact with the great 
names in art and literature; 

A college physician whose hobby 
was landscape gardening and who 
used his hobby to give us much that 
was to make the campus beautiful; 

A chemistry teacher who always 
took his text from the 23rd chapter 
of Jerusalem, and, of course, a 
foreign language teacher about 
whom all I can say is she was cer- 
tainly among the greatest. 

Faculty was stable in those days; 
there were few additions and fewer 
losses. In the time that a student 
spent here, he was easily able to 
know them all, and in many 
capacities. The entire first floor of 
Burnam Flail was occupied by 
women faculty members, and al- 
though they were segregated from 
students' living quarters, being 
housed under the same roof did 
something to humanize them for 
us. The student body numbered 
well under a thousand; everyone 
knew everyone else. We hadn't 
been educated to want very much 
and our needs were well provided 
for. We were, for the most part, un- 
worried.by international, national or 
local crises. The rules and regula- 



tions — most stringent by today's 
standards, were pretty much in line 
with those we had known at home, 
and we adhered to most of them 
without complaint. The one that 
caused most trouble was the no 
food proviso. Now those were the 
days of trains — a call from home that 
a package was being put on the 
11:15 barely gave us time to get to 
the depot to pick it up. Getting back 
into the dorm with a bushel basket 
of still warm homemade dough- 
nuts took some maneuvering, but 
we made it, and with the philosophy 
of all for one and one for all, it took 
very little time for all incriminating 
evidence to disappear. 

Each of you, I am sure, could with 
a little prodding recall your own 
good old days, and many of you 
have been doing just that as your 
classes met in reunion today. You, 
just as I, have classmates who have 
reached the heights in their chosen 
field of endeavor, and it's fun say- 
ing to yourself "I knew him when" 

Your being here tonight is evi- 
dence of your love for and your 
interest in Eastern. I, too, after 
graduation, whenever I was able, 
came back to alumni banquets and 
kept up with what was taking place 
on campus. When this building was 
dedicated in 1939, the President of 
the college stated "Eastern's build- 
ing program is now complete." The 
war years made this statement ap- 
pear to be true. Decreased enroll- 
ments made expansion of any kind

THE EASTERN KENTUCKY UNIVERSITY ALUMN 



ANIM 



IT MAY SEEM in conflict with the honor, but this 
year's Outstanding Alumnus, Karl D. Bays, '55, had 
a difficult time holding a job! 



In fact, he moved through 
the ranks so fast, many won- 
dered what his problem was 
until they realized it was the 
result of talent and persever- 
ance. 

He joined American Hospi- 
tal Supply Corporation, the 
company he now heads, in 
1958 and shortly thereafter 
was named a regional man- 
ager in Kansas City. In 1965 
he moved up to vice-president 
of operationals and a short 
time' later was named vice- 
president and general man- 
ager of Institutional Industries, 
Inc., a subsidiary of American 
Hospital Supply. 

Later the same year he was 
named president of Institution- 
al Industries and his irrepres- 
sible talent kept him on the 
move. In 1968 he was named 

president of the American Hospital Supply Division of 
American Hospital Supply Corporation. In 1969 he 
was named president. International Division, of Ameri- 
can Hospital Supply Corporation. 

He became Chief Executive Officer in 1971 after 
Deing named a director some time earlier. He pres- 
ently serves as President and Chief Executive Officer of 
^merican Hospital Supply Corporation, a leading 
manufacturer and distributor of health products and 
services worldwide with annual sales of more than 
5570 million and a payroll of some 14,500 people. 

But, there are other honors like being chosen a trus- 
tee of Berea College in 1972 and being appointed to 
President Nixon's Committee on Health Services In- 
dustry, an advisory panel to the Cost of Living Council, 
'rice Commission and Pay Board. And, he was also 
?iven the first Trojan MBA Achievement Award by the 
Jniversity of Southern California. 

In addition to these. Bays is a director of the North- 
ern Trust Bank of Chicago, a member of the Business 
Advisory Council of the Chicago LJrban League, and an 
associate trustee of Northwestern University's graduate 
school of management. 

He is a member of President Nixon's Council of the 
National College of Education, a member of the Acade- 

iUMMER, 1973 



KARL 
BA/S 

Outstanding 
Alumnus 



my of Fellows of the Indiana LIniversity School of Busi- 
ness, and a member of the Board of Directors of the 
Protestant Foundation of Greater Chicago. 

The list seems almost endless. There are more posi- 
tions, directorships, and honors, like being a member 
of the Chicago Club, the Economic Club, and the Ex- 
ecutives Club of Chicago. 

But, for Eastern, the most important single award is 
his BS in business and English in 1955. 

A native of Loyall, Bays has risen to the heights of 
the business world with the firm understanding that 
education was one factor that helped him skyrocket to 
his present position. 

"The most important thing a university can give its 
students is an inquiring mind and discerning judg- 
ment," he said last year when he was guest speaker at 
the Alumni Banquet. 

And apparently, he has acquired these qualities dur- 
ing his educational pursuits. 

Because of his splendid dedication to his business 
and his enormous capacity to work for the good of 
others, he has joined seventeen other graduates out of 
nearly 26,000 possible choices, as an Outstanding 
Alumnus of Eastern Kentucky University.

Governor Tells Graduates 



'Don't Be Afraid of Mistakes' 



FOR AT LEAST 16 years, and longer 
for some who are graduating 
today, words of wisdom have rained 
upon you — at times like a gentle 
shower, and at other times in tor- 
rents! 

By tradition, your last official role 
in this university is the participation 
in an exercise where there Is one 
more lecture. 

I promise a brief address! 

Thinking about your classroom 
experiences, you will recall that to 
reach this plateau, this conferring of 
a degree, you had to be on target. 
Right answers on examinations, the 
proper response to questions in 
class, and the ability to convey your 
correct procedures to those judging 
you, indicated achievement. 

Yet, there is another dimension to 
individual accomplishment which is 



often restrained by the fear of 
failure. 

So if I could pass along one piece 
of advice, it would be this: don't 
be afraid of making mistakes. 

You're going to be wrong many 
times between now and the day you 
die. You're going to make mistakes. 
If you don't, your existence will have 
no purpose, no meaning, no prom- 
ise. For you will have no initative, 
no enterprise, no interests. 

One's errors are the portals of 
discovery. Refusing to try some- 
thing new, or different, is shutting 
the door to success, to progress and 
to revelation. 

What is most important is your 
attitude toward mistakes. Let them 
be honest. Let them be sincere. Let 
them be worthy of the goals you 
strive to attain. If these conditions 



prevail, then it will be unnecessary 
to seek excuses for your mistakes. 

Logic finds an inherent danger in 
accepting human error as, "One of 
those things that's bound to hap- 
pen." Errors are bound to happen, 
yes, but what of the individual who 
has no spirit to challenge his com- 
mitted faults? In my opinion, the 
right to stumble is matched by the 
responsibility to recover. 

There is no immunity to personal 
error. There is only the obligation 
to profit from error. History teaches 
us that great men and women refuse 
to falter because of their mistakes. 

Henry Ford forgot to put a re- 
verse gear in his first automobile. 

Thomas Edison once spent over 
two million dollars on an invention 
that proved of little value. 

A writer once penned: "He who

makes no mistakes lacks boldness 
and the spirit of adventure. He is 
the one who never tries anything 
new: He is the brake on the wheels 
of progress." 

However, you will never succeed 
beyond the mistake to which you 
are willing to surrender. Only when 
nothing is done to prevent, or cor- 
rect your mistake, does it become a 
serious, unjustified blunder. 

In this nation are many freedoms 
— even the freedom to go broke! 
There is the freedom to be wrong. 
So long as the end does indeed 
justify the means. Whatever your 
future profession might be — science, 
education, engineering, business, 
agriculture or any of the others, 
remember — 

Those who have preceded you, 
and succeeded, did not succumb to 
the fear of making a mistake. On

the contrary, they drove on, recog- 
nizing the eventuality of error, and 
at the same time, the realization that 
discovery, or success, comes only 
when one freely pursues it. 

These same individuals also had 
the ability to recognize their lack 
of perfection. It is alarming, but 
unfortunately true, that some men 
and women either can't accept the 
fact they are wrong, or won't accept 
it. 

Whatever the case, it is a sad 
commentary. You can't correct your 
errors when you fail to recognize 
them. I suspect each of you in this 
audience knows someone who 
seems oblivious to his own mistakes. 

Hopefully, my admonition is 
clear. By cautioning you against a 
reluctance of doing something for 
fear of mistake, I do not want to 
leave the impression that mistakes 



can be accepted as commonplace. 
Hermann Coering, in his instructions 
to the Prussion police said in 1933: 
"Shoot first and inquire afterwards, 
and if you make mistakes, I will pro- 
tect you." 

Such instructions have no founda- 
tion of decency. But if you set your 
sights on what is honorable, you will 
overcome mistakes through personal 
advancement and triumph. 

The weak, and meek, take one of 
two routes. They live in horror of 
mistakes, thereby permitting a use- 
less life. Or, they cling to fragile 
excuses for their mistakes. 

The bold, and energetic, have a 
singular maturity about mistakes. 
They recognize the probability of 
many, and benefit from the few 
which do occur. 

You are in one of those categories 
right now.

THE UNIVERSITY CHAPLAIN REPORTS ON THE CHAPEL OF MEDITATION 



By DR. GEORGE NORDGULEN 
University Chaplain 

THE USE OF the Chapel as a place 
for personal meditation has 
been, I am pleased to report, very 
successful. The primary purpose of 
the chapel vk'as to meet the spiritual 
needs of the university personnel 
by providing a place for reverence 
and prayer. 

I have witnessed the growth of 
the number of persons who come 
into the chapel to commune with 
the Divine. During the fall semes- 
ter from about 30 to 50 persons 
used the chapel each day Monday 
through Friday and from 20 to 40 
per day used the chapel on the 
weekends. The increase of the 
spring semester shows about 60 to 
80 used the chapel daily during the 
week and about 30 to 50 per day 
used it on the weekends. 

What was even more encourag- 
ing was the fact that several stu- 
dents had definite times when they 
came into the chapel for medita- 
:ion. To me, this personal use of 
the chapel has been most gratifying 
ind there has been no misuse of it. 

It was thought from the begin- 
ling that one of the main uses of 
he chapel would be for weddings, 
his certainly is the case. During 
he first year of service there have 
)een 22 marriages in the chapel, 
'he chapel is very conducive for 
uch a service and its own intrinsic 
)eauty requires little or no decora- 
ion. Brides have told me that they 

not wish anything to detract 
'om the chapel setting itself. 

I have pre-marital counseling 
/ith the couples for whom I per- 
3rm the services, which has been 

most rewarding experience. Sev- 
ral of those couples have stopped 

1 since to say hello and to express 
leir appreciation and pride that 
leir marriage was held in the 
hapel. I receive letters expressing 

UMMER, 1973 



The Chapel of Meditation was be- 
gun in 1968 when the Eastern 
Alumni Association adopted the 
Century Fund project to finance a 
non-denominational chapel. 




Dr. George 
Nordgulen 



Dr. George S. Nordgulen, the 
campus chaplain, assumed his duties 
in July 1972. A Massachusetts na- 
tive. Dr. Nordgulen is a graduate of 
Northwest Christian College, Eugene, 
Oregon; Phillips University, Enid, 
Oklahoma, and he holds the doctor- 
ate of philosophy from Claremont 
(California) Graduate School. He 
has also studied at the University of 
Oregon. 

In addition to serving as chaplain. 
Dr. Nordgulen is also associate 
professor in the Department of 
Philosophy. In this article, he re- 
counts the first year of the Chapel 
of Meditation. 



thanks for the time and counsel 
students have received. Each 
couple helps to write their own 
ceremony and it is bound in a cover 
depicting the chaped and given to 
them after the wedding. This is 
certainly one of the most rewarding 
aspects of my position! 

One of the purposes of the 
Chapel is to provide opportunity for 
memorial services. When tragedy 
strikes the University family, we all 
feel it and are aware of the loss. 
This year two students met untimely 
deaths and services were held for 
them in the chapel. Students iden- 
tify with their fellow-students and 
when tragedy strikes they desire an 
opportunity to reflect, to remem- 
ber, to pay their respects to the one 



with whom they have loved and 
worked. 

I can testify to the meaningful- 
ness of hearing another student 
speak in behalf of his friend. When 
we are students in the university, we 
do not think of death as near but 
when it is brought near then we are 
thankful for memorial services. As 
a student said to me after one of the 
services, "I felt so helpless the last 
few days but here, with all my 
friends, I feel stronger." There was 
also a graveside service for one of 
our departed faculty members. 

There are 13 different religious 
organizations here at Eastern and 
many of them have taken advantage 
of the chapel for special services. 
Eight of the groups have scheduled 
at least two meetings per semester 
and four of the others one meeting 
each semester. When the various 
religious groups have a special pro- 
gram, they desire the use of the 
chapel. Many of the groups have 
ministers who meet with them once 
a month or so and at these times 
they plan for special studies or other 
types of services. 

This year all of the various re- 
ligious groups came together to 
partake in a Communion service at 
Easter. It was a service of reading 
scripture, prayer and participation. 
The atmosphere of the chapel lends 
itself most appropriately to this kind 
of service. 1 myself, officiated at the 
service and received a book from 
one of the groups with the follow- 
ing inscription: "Thank you for 
helping us with the communion 
service. We appreciate the use of 
the chapel for such services." 

Initiations into sororities and fra- 
ternities are a very solemn occasion 
and the pledges made are solemn- 
ized many times by religious serv- 
ices. Throughout the year various 
groups have had their initiations in 
the chapel. During this year, twen- 
ty-nine groups used the chapel for 



21 




initiations, nine the fall term and 
twenty during the spring term. 

These groups desire a place that 
will help them to point up the sig- 
nificance of membership within the 
group and the chapel provides such 
a place. Various students from 
these organizations have expressed 
to me personally how much they 
appreciate the use of the chapel for 
these services. I feel this use of the 
chapel is important. Privacy where 
such services can be carried out on 
a university campus is scarce. 

The chapel attracts many different 
students for many different reasons, 
not the least of which is to talk with 
someone about various issues that 
confront the student. During the 
year ! have met with 135 different 
students to talk about different 
questions. Some of these have to 
do with religion, some with per- 
sonal problems of adjustment to 
university life, some with vocational 
problems and still others with deep 
emotional problems. "I want to 
get away from it all" is a common 
remark. Talking with students both 
in terms of personal problems and 
academic problems is a challenging 
experience. Not that I have all the 
answers but together we are able to 
see the issues more clearly and 
clarify some alternative solutions. 

"A dream come true" is an apt 
way of describing the chapel. We 
need "to dream dreams and see 
visions" if we are to cope with the 
kind of world in which we live. So 

The Chapel of Meditation is a 
place for reverence and prayer; 

It is a place for evaluating the past 
and redirecting the future; 

It is a time to stir the depths of 
one's spirit, to go deep into 
oneself; 

It is a time for right mindfulness 
and the search for wisdom; 

It requires self-love as well as

other-love, decision as well as 
commitment. 
So enter to commune in silence 
in order that you might go 
forth to serve in love; 

For out of the depths of silence 
comes strength and out of the 
power of love comes brother- 
hood. 



Mr. Clarence Gifford summed u 
this personal feeling when he sai 
to me during this last commence 
ment period: "I consider th 
Chapel one of the most valuable ir 
vestments of my life." It is valuabi 
because it gives value to all wh 
would come here to meditate.

THE EASTERN KENTUCKY UNIVERSITY ALUMNU 



SPECIAL REPORT 




Can We Save 
the Individuality 

of Our Colleges? 

If - 

3r will powerful pressures, 
)n and off the campuses, 
iomogenize higher education? 



UOHT 1973 BY EDITOUAL PROJECTS FOU EDUCATION, INC. 



AMERICANS have long prided themselves on the 
individuality of their colleges and universities. 
, The special ambiance of each campus. The 
combination of people and purpose. Spirit. The sounds 
and smells that make it different from all others. 

And more: 

. . . The autonomy of each institution that enables it 
to choose freely its own goals — and the programs to at- 
tain them. 

. . . The peculiarly American genius for promoting 
the existence, side by side, of public and private col- 
leges and universities. 

... A "system" of higher education, in the best 
sense of the word: a group of interacting, interrelated, 
interdependent elements, existing in a more-or-less har- 
monious relationship. But intensely individual, nonethe- 
less. Certainly not "systematized," if the word implies a 
lockstep, or central control, or dull uniformity. 

The result is one of society's major miracles: more 
than 2,600 colleges and universities, each one different 
from all the rest. Different, yet committed to the com- 



mon idea that through diversity and individuality the 
needs of the culture will be met. 

BUT NOW we are encountering forces that threaten 
the survival of all that. For the first time in a 
century, serious questions must be raised about 
the ability of our colleges to maintain their individual 
distinctiveness — and of the system to maintain its 
diversity. 

The historic immensity of what is happening is only 
beginning to be clear. After an era of unprecedented 
confidence and e.xpansion throughout higher education, 
there is now a widespread questioning of higher educa- 
tion's place in our culture, and of its claim on our re- 
sources. And growth — which for decades has been the 
hallmark of our colleges and universities — is decelerat- 
ing. "" 

With these developments have come crises of size 
and money and quality affecting the great diversity of 
our system of higher education — and the individuality 
of each college and university within it. 



Individuality 
and the Changing 
Student Population 



FOR the past 100 years, American higher education 
has been growing at an accelerating rate. Enroll- 
ments doubled every 15 years until World War 
II; sin^e then, they have doubled every decade. 

That is not likely ever to happen again. 

The Carnegie Commission on Higher Education pre- 
dicts that enrollments will increase only by one-half be- 
tween 1970 and 1980, and not at all between 1980 and 
1990. In the last decade of the century, they will go 
up by only a third. 

Enrollments in private institutions actually will drop, 
the federal government estimates, between 1977 and 
1980. 

By the end of this decade, say statisticians in the 
U.S. Office of Education, private education's share of 
all college enrollments will fall from 22.3 per cent in 
1972-73 to 17.5 per cent in 1980-81. 

These reductions in growth hold profound implica- 
tions for all colleges and universities. Notes Princeton's 
President William G. Bowen: 

"This battle for survival [private vs. public colleges 
and universities] has very serious implications for 
American higher education in general, which draws 



much of its strength from pluralism: that is, from th 
presence of many strong private and many strong put 
lie institutions working in different ways together. 

"If this diversity were to be eroded, American highe 
education would suffer significantly." 



TIhere is more at stake than survival: the seriouj 
question. Survival for what? 
In the period of expansion, a college or uni 
versity could set its goals and be reasonably assured tha 
enough students would be attracted by them. It canno' 
be so confident in a period when enrollments are stabli 
and resources scarcer. The tendency in those circum 
stances is to standardize, to avoid setting goals that an 
offbeat, to try to be all things to as many men ami 
women as possible. Under such conditions, mere surviva 
is not an attractive prospect. 

Decelerating growth and "no-growth" have othe 
ramifications. If enrollment levels are to be maintained 
some colleges and universities will be forced to accep 
students who do not meet the traditional criteria foil! 
college admissions. 

"Low academic ability [measured by traditiona 
means] will be the distinctive characteristic" of man) 
such students, writes K. Patricia Cross of the Centei 
for Research and Development in Higher Education al 
the University of California at Berkeley. 

"We have not yet faced the full meaning of this pre- 
diction," Ms. Cross says. Such students will requiK 
major changes in the curriculum, major new sources ol 
financial support, and faculty members specially trained 
to recognize and reward the non-academic skills they 
bring to the campus. 

Another development — the growing pressure to edu- 
cate a far greater percentage of adults than presently 
— will change the character of many a college and uni- 
versity. Already, a significant number of flexible ar- 
rangements are under way — "open universities," 
external-degree programs, "universities without walls" 
— to meet the needs of those who cannot leave full- 
time employment to earn their college degrees. 

Alterations in the traditional picture of higher educa- 
tion will be extensive. Says Ernest L. Boyer, chancellor 
of the State University of New York: 

"The old model of a scattered collection of isolated 
enclaves, each jealously guarding its resources and mi- 
nutely regulating its students, who must remain in con- 
finement for a four-year term, is giving way to a far 
more complex, dynamic image — a network of learning, 
resembling perhaps the human nervous system itself: 
intricate, continually pulsating, and totally intercon- 
nected." 

The individual campus, as Mr. Boyer sees it, "is be- 
coming less a fortress surrounded by its moat and more 
of a supermarket of ideas, a library with easy access, oi;' 
a base of operations to coordinate learning, not con- 
trol it." 

Few would quarrel with the aims of such programs. 
They offer the possibility of lifelong learning for many 



iPSF 




citizens who have not been able to afford a college 
education in the past. They permit vast numbers ol 
persons to earn academic degrees in less time with 
more options. 

Yet many observers are concerned. 

Supermarkets, they say, are not very friendly places. 
While you may meet your material needs there, yout 
spiritual needs may be unfulfilled. 

Without precautions, says Stephen K. Bailey of Syra- 
cuse University, such programs "can lead to a parade 
of academic horrors: cram courses organized by fast 
buck proprietary schools, a deadly standardization olj 
subject-matter, tutoring to the test." 

State legislatures, others warn, could use the develop- 
ment of the new programs as an excuse for reducing 
support for the traditional colleges and universities. 

Pehaps most serious of all, however, are fears that 
such programs might change the whole definition of ed- 
ucation in our society. An individual experience, lead- 
ing to the development of '"whole men and women" 
or "good citizens," might become a purely utilitarian 
process of providing the credentials a person needs to 
earn a living. 

One writer describes the new trends this way: 

"We don"t offer extracurricular activities; we elimi- 
nate most of the theory courses; we give practical ap- 
plications; and we get the students through in one-third 
the time. We get them through fast." 

Another observer deplores the prospect: 

"This is the attitude of a new breed of educators, the 
big-business organizers, who are moving into education 
and turning out graduates on an assembly-line basis 
Apparently they are being paid by the head count." 



TIhere are ways to broaden our commitment to 
educating as many people as possible, without 
sacrificing the best qualities of higher education 
that we have known in the past. They lie in more indi- 
viduality for our colleges and universities, not less; more 
diversity in our system of higher education, not less. But. 
as we shall see, other forces — in addition to those ac- 
companying the new era of no-growth — may be putting 
those qualities in serious jeopardy. 




■S9r 



Individuality 

and the Trend Toward 

Central Control 



HIGHER education's long period of postwar growth 
coincided with a long period of national afflu- 
ence. As the economy boomed, tax dollars were 
more numerous than ever before in history — and, nearly 
jverywhere, public colleges and universities received a 
op-priority share of them. 

Most states still place higher education well up on 
heir priority lists. But urgent new needs have devel- 
)ped in other areas — e.g.. health care, aid for the dis- 
idvantaged — and the competition for tax dollars has 
jrown. 

The result: Public colleges and universities have 
leen subjected to unprecedented demands for 
'efficiency" — some justified, others panicky and unwise. 
Vnd to achieve that efficiency, many states are dramati- 
:ally reorganizing their structures of public higher edu- 
cation. 

Once-autonomous institutions, each seeking its own 
oals, are finding themselves incorporated in larger and 
jrger "systems" of public colleges and universities, 
ften statewide in scope. Decision-making is central- 
zed. Duplicate functions are eliminated. 
. From an efficiency standpoint, the trend makes 
^nse. "It seems to us," argue Paul L. Dressel and Wil- 
am H. Faricy of Michigan State University, "that 
igher education must be regarded as a national r€- 
3urce, that the roles of institutions must be deter- 
lined by social need, and that resources must be 
Uocated according to a plan and their actual use 
:counted for." 



/ 



They add: 

"In moving in this direction, we are permitting the 
public and politicians to make decisions about the char- 
acter of institutions — and their decisions may not al- 
ways accord with the views of those involved with 
higher education." 

In 1959, fewer than half the states had formal, legal 
mechanisms for statewide coordination of higher educa- 
tion. Now 47 states have such mechanisms. "Besides 
this dramatic increase in numbers," writes one ob- 
server, "statewide coordinating boards have increased 
in power in their areas of influence and in coercive po- 
tential." 

The trend away from campus autonomy and toward 
central planning is likely to encompass many private 
institutions as well, when — as is happening in many 
states — they receive increasing support from public 
funds. 

"Why," asks one observer, "should the non-public in- 
stitutions receive tax dollars and not be subjected to the 
same planning and operating constraints and criteria 
for accountability as the public institutions? While the 
initial small, indirect aids may call for a modicum of 
state control, once the amounts become substantial, the 
institution can be treated in no other way than as an 
integral cog in the coordinated state system." 

It may even be that some national system of higher 
education will emerge from the upheavals now occur- 
ring. Clark Kerr, chairman of the Carnegie Commis- 
sion, says that education is becoming a "quasi-public 
utility" — especially since it, like electric power and 
other utilities, has become essential in the lives of peo- 
ple. Just as utilities require regulatory agencies to pro- 
tect the public interest, say some observers, so the pros- 
pect of government regulation of higher education 
cannot be ruled out. 

WHAT happens to the colleges' individuality and 
diversity, in the wake of such developments? 
The president of one public institution in 
Ohio, Miami University, says that as the state system 
has developed, "we have witnessed a lockstep pro- 
gression, statewide, into a common calendar, into a 




.^^ 



t -nnumnMimuiiiuM 



common subsidy formula, into a virtually common fee 
pattern." He warns: 

"If diversity is coming out of the public system and 
is replaced with a pale, insipid sameness, and if there is 
a simultaneous withering of the private sector, one can 
question what the future holds for the very fiber of our 
system of higher education." 

The movement toward more centralized authority, 
however, seems inexorable. It is clear that the public 
and its elected representatives are no longer willing to 
let the colleges and universities, alone, decide what is 
educationally best for the society. "Education," says an 
observer, "is too important, and too expensive, to be 
left entirely to the educators." 

How, then, can colleges and universities learn to live 
in the larger systems, while preserving their diversity 
and individuality? They must be ingenious enough to 
develop mechanisms to preserve flexibility within a 
highly structured whole — and thai poses one of the 
•najor challenges for higher education and its support- 
!rs in the years to come. 



Individuality 

land the Unionization 

Df Faculties 




u 



NTiL RECENTLY, the prospect of faculty members' 
joining unions and engaging in collective bar- 
gaining seemed foreign to both the spirit and the 
(Cality of life on most campuses. Colleges and univer- 
ities were serene havens far removed from the material- 
>m and economic competition of the industrial world, 
nd faculty members wejb thought of (and regarded 
hemselves) not as "employees" but as individual pro- 
essionals. 
Although thousands of faculty members and college 



administrators still recoil from the notion of faculties 
organizing in collective-bargaining units, unionization 
— and all that goes with it — has made major gains on 
the campuses in the past five years. Most observers ex- 
pect the trend to quicken rather than to slow down. 

Already, the faculties at nearly 300 colleges and uni- 
versities have won bargaining rights. More than half of 
the institutions are two-year colleges, but unionism is 
also gaining significant footholds in many four-year 
institutions, as well. Faculties at the State Univer- 
sity of New York and the City University of New 
York are organized collectively, and the California leg- 
islature is considering a move to permit public employ- 
ees to organize in that state. 

The movement toward faculty unionization was 
speeded by a recent decision of the National Labor Re- 
lations Board that private institutions with annual 
budgets of $1 -million or more fall under its jurisdic- 
tion. In the past, the nlrb excluded such institutions, 
so that only the public colleges and universities in 
states that had laws permitting their employees to orga- 
nize could develop unionized faculties. 

THESE occurrences have combined to make the 
debate over whether faculty members should join 
unions irrelevant. The issue now is, What impact 
will collective bargaining have on the character of our 
colleges and universities — and on the relationships be- 
tween faculty members, administrators, students, and 
governing boards? 

"Almost certainly," says one observer, "collective 
bargaining in higher education will move to statewide 
or system-wide levels and, in the process, destroy much 
of the autonomy of the separate campuses." He adds: 

"Collective bargaining in a state system of higher ed- 
ucation will ultimately promote centralization of deci- 
sion-making. Collective bargaining will contravene the 
individual and departmental autonomy for which many 
faculty members have battled so long." 

Collective bargaining's advocates disagree vigorously. 

"In fact," says one union official, "bargaining is a re- 
sponse to that trend. The only way faculty members 
can play a role, when policies are established on a state- 
wide basis, is through bargaining and political action. 
Otherwise, it will just be done over their heads." 



i 



n 





In addition, union leaders point out, they have vigor- 
ously opposed such steps as the setting of statewide 
woric-load standards by some legislatures. 

Nonetheless, warns William B. Boyd, president of 
Central Michigan University, the administration of a 
collective bargaining contract, "with its emphasis on le- 
galism, its grievance-laden tendencies, and its use of 
adversary proceedings, will almost inevitably change 
the tone of university administration. The last remnants 
of colleagueship are apt to disappear. Personal relation- 
ships are almost bound to change when personnel rela- 
tions are altered so fundamentally." 

Can the traditional character of a college or univer- 
sity survive such strains? Or will the changes wrought 
by the unionization of faculties be a further cause of 
declining individuality and diversity? 



Individuality 
and the 
Money Crunch 



THE FINANCIAL CRISIS in higher education has re- 
placed student protest as the "big issue" in the 
eyes of the press and public. Where once the 
headlines told of 100 students arrested for their roles in 
demonstrations, they now tell of 100 colleges and 
universities confronting the prospect of financial disaster. 

The money crisis is real and of major proportions. 
Some private institutions face the possibility of extinc- 
tion. 

The existence of other institutions — public and 
private — is threatened. The Carnegie Commission pre- 
dicts that nearly two-thirds of the nation's colleges and 
universities are in financial trouble or headed for it. 

One fepectacular case is that of New York University 
— the nation's biggest private institution of higher edu- 
cation. After several years of backbreaking deficits. 
N.Y.u. announced last fall that it planned to eliminate 
more than 200 faculty positions, sell one of its cam- 
puses to the public system of higher education, and in- 
sist that, henceforth, every academic unit within the 
university be able to pay its own way plus its fair share 
of university overhead. 

Higher education's financial crunch came on the 
heels of several years of student disruptions — and some 
observers have attributed the crisis to the loss of faith 
in colleges and universities that followed. But the roots 
lie deeper — in the end of the era of growth. 

In its simplest terms, higher education's crisis has de- 
veloped because costs kept rising while income did not. 



(There is a limit to the amount of tuition a college c 
university can charge and still remain competitive.* 
At major universities, large research programs were in 
tiated with federal funds. Those funds have grow 
scarcer as the government's priorities changed, lea\ 
ing those universities with commitments they cannot al 
ford. 

The increasing costs hit both public and prival 
institutions. 

One observer says that the huge growth during thj 
1960's was itself one of the main causes of higher edu' 
cation's money troubles. Colleges and universities wer 
all the more vulnerable, he says, because they weri 
"undercapitalized, overextended, and moving into ir 
creased areas of responsibility without permanen 
financing." ; 

Yet — while the financial crisis is real, and some insti! 
tutions have been forced to close their doors — for th ' 
vast majority of colleges and universities, survival itsei 
is not in question. 

Even at New York University, with its appallin 
problems. President James M. Hester believes that th 
draconian steps he has taken will assure the universit)' 
survival. 

"The disease has been diagnosed, the prescriptio 
has been made. We are taking the medicine," sa\ 
Mr. Hester. "It is very painful, but it is possible." 

Edward D. Eddy, president of Chatham College 
puts it thus: 

"Posting a death notice for all of private higher edu 
cation is like shooting all the horses because some hav« 
the wheeze." 

"The great majority of the institutions will survive.' 
Mr. Eddy declares. "Despite the many predictions o 
their demise, surprisingly few have closed their doors 
Institutions of higher learning- do have a persistent 
and tenacity — but not necessarily a guaranteed quality 
And there is the rub." 

The nation's colleges, Mr. Eddy says, "by and largf 
will survive. But the emerging question is clearly on( 
of spirit, not just life." 

THE economic crisis poses one especially nettling 
threat to the diversity of the system of higher 
education and the individuality of every institu- 
tion: well-meaning but potentially damaging cries foi 
heightened efficiency and productivity on the campuses 
If taken too literally, such a movement could turr 
the nation's colleges and universities into faceless, spirit 
less factories. 



* A recent study has shown, for instance, that in 1964-65 
a group of representative private institutions was charg- 
ing $657 more per student than a group of representative 
public institutions. By 1971-72, the same private institutions 
were charging $1,242 more per student than the public 
institutions. 



Most observers agree that many colleges and univer- 
sities can and must improve their fiscal policies. But, 
warns Paul C. Reinert, president of Saint Louis Univer- 
sity, they cannot be run hke businesses. "There is," he 
says, "more at stake than Kleenex." 

"Efficiency in higher education remains a complex 
matter," warns Howard K. Bowen, chancellor of the 
Claremont University Center. "Society may be in dan- 
ger of trying to restrict the functions of higher educa- 
tion too narrowly, and to convert institutions into mere 
assembly lines generating credit hours, rather than al- 
lowing them to function as centers of learning and 
culture. 

"It would be a mistake, harmful to both education 
and to social welfare, to turn colleges and universities 
into credit-and-degree manufacturers and to judge them 
solely by their productivity in these terms." 

Father Reinert sums it up: "We must keep in mind 
that there are substantive differences between a college 
and a business. Drive a corporation to the wall and it 
may make adjustments in its operations that enable it 
to bounce back. Drive a college to the wall and you 
can kill it." 



E 



VEN more controversial than the cries for effici- 
ency are issues raised by the variety of solutions 
that have been proposed for higher education's 
J money troubles. 

|, Virtually everyone agrees that major new infusions 
' of public funds for both private and public institutions 
will be needed. But how those funds should be chan- 
neled — whether they should come from the federal or 
state governments, whether they should be in the form 
of institutional aid or grants and loans to students — 
produce deep divisions within the academic community. 
The Carnegie Commission has argued against 
"lump-sum, across-the-board grants" from the federal 
government. They could lead to reduced state support 
and to the development of a "nationalized system" with 
strict government controls, the commission says. In- 
, stead, it favors basing federal support to an institution 
I on the number of federally supp>orted, needy students 
enrolled, with the states providing the bulk of the sup- 
port. 
I Spokesmen for some institutions of higher education 
disagree. Direct federal grants to the colleges and uni- 
versities, they argue, can make the difference between 
the survival and collapse of many of them. 

Spokesmen for many other institutions have argued 
that new government support should come in two 
forms: outright grants to the most needy students and 
"income-contingent loans" to middle-class students. 
(Under such loans, how much a student must pay back 
would be determined in part by how much he earned 
after graduation.) 

With most support going to students, these educators 
argue, both public and private institutions could raise 
their tuitions to a point that would more nearly pay for 
the actual cost of providing an education. 




Such a system would best preserve the diversity of 
our system of higher education, says an economist 
from the Brookings Institution. We need^ he says, "a 
shift to public support of students rather than the ex- 
cessive reliance on institutionalized support that charac- 
terizes current public support programs." He goes on: 

"Such a program of portable aid would free institu- 
tions to develop their own conceptions of the 
curriculum required to produce better people and, 
more importantly, would give student-consumers a right 
to choose among alternative conceptions. The govern- 
ment could and should scrutinize the academic offer- 
ings for which it is indirectly paying, but the nature of 
such investigations would change." 

Officials at most public institutions oppose any major 
shifts of aid from institutional support to suppwrt of 
students. The necessary increases in tuition, they say, 
would end the nation's long-standing commitment to 
low-cost higher education, and would shift the major 
burden of paying for education from the society at 
large to the individual student. 

That shift, they say, would represent an end to the 
belief that society as a whole— not just the individual 
student — benefits from the higher education of its citi- 
zens. 



Switching from institutional support to loans and 
grants "constitutes a definite shift away from public de- 
cisions and responsibility for the support and control of 
higher education and toward a philosophy of private 
responsibility and private enterprise, with major conse- 
quences," says Clifton R. Wharton. Jr., president of 
Michigan State University. 

"The shift would transform the goals, values, and 
conduct of the entire higher educational system," he 
says. 

Decisions to be made soon in Congress and the state 
legislatures probably will determine how much new 
governmental aid will be forthcoming and what form 
the aid will take. Alumnae and alumni concerned 
about preserving the qualities of higher education could 
do higher education no greater service than keeping in- 
formed about the alternatives, and advising their repre- 
sentatives of their preferences. 

THE economic crisis in higher education is, in a 
sense, the cause of all the other forces moving 
toward the homogenization and standardization 
of our colleges and universities. 

Many observers suspect that neither the movement 
toward statewide systems of colleges and universities 
nor the trend toward collective bargaining among the 
faculty members would have gone so far if the era of 
great growth had not ended. Suddenly, in the economic 
depression that followed, higher education was no 
longer society's favorite place to spend money. 

How, under such conditions, can colleges and uni- 
versities provicje diversity and individuality? Must they 
sacrifice their autonomy and individuality? Or can they 
find ways to live with the end of growth without giving 
way to drab uniformity? 




Individuality: 
All the Threats 
Combine 




THE end of an era of growth, the scarcity of new' 
resources, the increased competition for them 
and the public's changing definition of highei; 
education's role in society have all combined to produce] 
a major challenge for the nation's colleges and univer 
sities. , 

The task before them now is to meet the challengesl 
while preserving the best of the past. i 

It is easy to be pessimistic about the prospects.' 
Doom-sayers abound. Here is how some severe critics 
have described current conditions on the campuses: 

► "Resf)ect for universities [faculties and 
administrators] has been replaced by distrust and sur- 
veillance." 

► "Informal procedures and policies based upon 
mutual resf>ect and confidence within the university 
have been replaced by insistence upon due process and 
by formalized codes." 

► "Collegiality based upon uni^y in goals has been 
replaced by identification and resolution of conflict." 

Such concerns are not limited to severe critics. 

Theodore M. Hesburgh, president of the University ol 
Notre Dame, speculates that "perhaps during that pe- 
riod of rapid growth, the institutions — the academic 
community — grew beyond the potential to be personal 
and human." 

William C. Mclnnes, president of the University of 
San Francisco, says: "People will spend their money, 
contribute their money, pay their money for services 
and things in which they believe. What has happened 
in many cases is that people don't believe in education 
the way they used to." 

As a result, many institutions feel more threatened 
than ever by the challenges before them. 

One consequence has been that the conflicts between 
public and private higher education have been exacer- 
bated. Once the expansion of the entire higher educa- 
tional system ceased, the happy state no longer pre- 
vailed in which everyone was prospering. Now, one 
institution's gain may well be another's loss. Public and 
private education now often view progress for one as a 
possible threat to the other. 

Says a former official of a state system of higher ed- 
ucation: ! 

"The pleadings of the private segment for state finan- 
cial aid are gaining ground — not nearly enough to save 



them financially, but sufficient to reduce the direct level 
of funding for the public institutions." 

Warns the head of a major educational association: 
"I am firmly convinced that the gravest danger facing 
us is the possibility of a serious division between the 
public and the independent sectors of higher education. 
Relatively dormant for well over a decade, as might be 
expected during a period of economic expansion, signs 
Df divisiveness are again appearing as we move further 
nto the stringent '70's." 

The situation looks confused and troublesome. 
Higher education has reached a state where it enjoys 
ess public confidence, has less confidence itself about 
vhat its purposes are, and faces unprecedented compe- 
ition for a place on America's priority list. 

Yet the need for new curricula, and for new educa- 
ional commitments to new kinds of students, was 
lever greater. How can colleges respond in innovative 
vays, when they must tighten their belts and curtail 
heir functions? ' 

Kingman Brewster, president of Yale University, sees 
his paradox: "Although all universities badly need 
tuhds in order to experiment with new techniques of 
taming and study that go beyond the library, the labo- 
iatory, and the classroom, most of the ideas for mas- 
jve central government supf>ort threaten to impose a 
Jead hand of bureaucracy, central planning, and red 
^pe on local initiative." 

] Colleges and universities thus face major dilemmas: 
I ► How to continue to be effective in a time when 
pey need major new sources of outside support; and 
How to keep their distinctiveness in an era that 



jquires economy and ingenuity. 

ndividuality: 
Dan We 
Save It? 



Do colleges and universities — as we have known 
them — have a future? Or are we headed for 
some massive, standardized, nationalized sys- 
m of higher education? Need a new vision of higher 
iucation — as a public utility that everyone can use — 
"oduce an impersonal assembly line? 
Put another way: 

Can private colleges and universities survive in a 
/jTin worth preserving? Can public institutions avoid 
'e "pale, insipid sameness" that some see looming on 
' le horizon? 



No one can be blindly optimistic. But many thought- 
ful observers feel that the present critical stage poses 
not only problems for higher education, but unparal- 
leled opportunities. The long period of expansion, they 
argue, put a premium on graduate education and re- 
search, and higher education made enormous gains 
quantitatively. Qualitatively, however, the improvement 
may have been insignificant. On the undergraduate 
level, indeed, what a student received from his institu- 
tion may not have been much better than what was 
provided' to his predecessors in earlier generations. 

Now that the pressures for growth have eased, 
colleges and universities have an opportunity to 
be truly individual; to set for themselves spe- 
cific, achievable goals, and to pursue them effectively. 

In an era of no-growth, it is the institutions that 
know what they want to be, and how they are going to 
be it, that will survive and prevail. 

Both public and private institutions will be among 
them. Steven Muller, president of the (private) Johns 
Hopkfns University, notes: 

"Privacy means relative independence. We have at 
least the freedom to choose among alternatives, re- 
stricted as that choice may be. rather than to have our 
decisions dictated to us by public bodies. 

"Our privacy as a university thus exists only as a 
narrow margin. . . . Our task is to preserve that narrow 
margin and to make the best possible use of it." 

Phillip R. Shriver of Ohio's Miami University (state- 
supported) speaks from the public-institution standpoint: 

"Each university ought to be able to develop its own 
personality and uniqueness. Each ought to have its own 
strengths. Each ought to be encouraged to develop its 
own individual programs." 

The first task, then, for every institution of higher 
education — public and private — must be to develop a 
firm sense of what it ought to be and how best to 
achieve it. 

Each institution must know, and believe in, its own 
personality and uniqueness. 

A foundation official says: 

"The time has come to take a total look at each of 
our institutions in some systematic way which relates 
energy and material input to learning output, and re- 
lates behavioral objectives to social needs. If we do not 
strenuously undertake this task and succeed, then our 
present troubles in a variety of areas will become far 
worse. Indeed, I see the specter of government or even 
industrial control of our colleges and universities." 

Sir Eric Ashby, a distinguished British educator who 
has served as a member of America's Carnegie Com- 
mission, says: 

"The gravest single problem facing American higher 
education is the alarming disintegration of consensus 
about purpose. It is not just that the academic commu- 
nity cannot agree on technicalities of curricula, certifi- 
cation, and governance: it is a fundamental doubt 
about the legitimacy of universities as places insulated 



llH 




from society to pursue knowledge disengaged from its 
social implications." 

Ending that fundaniental doubt, says Sir Eric, will 
require "a reevaluation of the relation between univer- 
sities and American society." 

IN SHORT, the American people must rebuild their 
faith in the colleges and universities — and the 
colleges and universities must rebuild faith in them- 
selves. In doing so, both parties to the contract can 
assure the survival of both the vast system's diversity 
and the individuality of its parts. 

Many colleges and universities have already begun 
the necessary reassessments and redefinitions. Commis- 
sions on the future have been established on scores of 
campuses. Faculty members, students, administrators, 
trustees, alumni, and alumnae have been enlisted to 
help define their institutions' goals for the years to 
come. 

Those new definitions, now emerging, recognize the 
end of the era of expansion and come to terms with it. 
Some institutions have chosen to remain small, some 
large. Others have chosen to focus on specific missions, 
e.g., ecology, health services, the arts. Still others are 
moving into the preparation of teachers for the two- 
year colleges that, in the years ahead, will attract many 
new students to higher education. For their part, many 
two-year colleges are resisting pressures to expand into 
four-year institutions, electing to concentrate on provid- 
ing the best possible educational opportunities to their 
own non-traditional student constituencies. 

Whatever the role they define for themselves, such 
colleges and universities are seeking ways to make edu- 
cation more individual and more rewarding. 

COLLEGES and universities still have a long way to 
go before they adjust to the financial stresses, 
the changing market conditions, the demands 
for reform that have beset them. Those that adjust most 
effectively will be the ones that survive as distinctive, 
individual institutions. 

Chatham College's President Eddy notes that our in- 
stitutions, "swinging into the troublesome "TO's from 
the unusually affluent '60's, resemble a middle-aged and 
slightly portly man who discovers that he is panting 
heavily after climbing a quick flight of stairs. He 
doesn't have yesterday's bounce." 



'He has a choice. He can become a first-class hy| • 



chon^riac and, in all probability, bring on the attai 
by discouragement and tension. Or he can diet, cut c 
smoking, and start some consistent, sensible exerci 
He must convince himself that life is worth living — a 
living to the hilt— despite an occasional long flight 
stairs." 

The end of the era of growth has opened once mc 
the great debate about the role of higher education ( 
any education, for that matter) in the lives of Individ 
als and in the health of society. The future, in ma 
ways, is up for grabs. 

Those who care deeply about the diversity and im 
viduality of our colleges and universities must assul 
that — regardless of what they become — they prescr 
their distinctive spirit in the changing future. | 

"There is little profit in licking our wounds or fet' 
ing sorry for ourselves," says Father Hesburgh ■ 
Notre Dame. "We still represent the best hope f 
America's future, provided we learn from our own mii 
takes and reestablish in the days ahead what has :! 
often testified to the nobility of our endeavors in tim' 
past. 

"All is not lost. We are simply beginning again, ., 
many always must, in a world filled with ambiguitie 
the greatest of which is man himself."

JOHN ROWLETT BECOMES EASTERN'S LEADING ACADEMICIAN 



By JOHN WINNECKE 



THE SEARCH was far-reaching and 

thorough . . . but it ended right 
at home. It ended, in fact, just 
across the hall, about 20 paces from 
the president's office. 

And so, after nine months of 
scanning and screening, Dr. John D. 
Rowlett was named to succeed Dr. 
Thomas Stovall as Vice President for 
Academic Affairs at Eastern Ken- 
tucky University. 

Dr. Rowlett, a 45-year-old native 
of Denton, Texas, has been at East- 
ern for nearly 22 years . . . since 
August of 1951. He left "a comfort- 
able position" with North Texas 
State College in his hometown, 
being attracted to Eastern by the 
reputation of its industrial arts de- 
partment. 

It was on Alumni Day, Saturday, 
May 12, that the EKU Board of Re- 
gents approved President Robert R. 
Martin's recommendation that Row- 
lett be appointed Vice President for 
Academic Affairs and Research and 
also become Dean of the Faculties. 

He was selected from among 
some 200 applicants, several of 
whom were invited to the campus 
for interviews by a screening com- 
mittee. He was Vice President for 
Research and Development prior to 

40 



being named Acting Vice President 
for Academic Affairs nearly a year 
ago. He retains his responsibilities 
for research. 

Dr. Rowlett's philosophy as aca- 
demic dean is one of adjustment, 
"Adjustment to institutional organi- 
zation and institutional methods of 
serving the student who desires to 
pursue an education at Eastern," he 
stipulates. 

"We have a commitment," he 
continues, "to the idea that educa- 
tion is important to all students. 
We have a charge to provide them 
with the best possible curriculum to 
meet their needs in their pursuit to 
serve as citizens." 

Alternately chewing and puffing 
on one of seven pipes that adorn 
his desk, Rowlett cited the multi- 
plicity of the curriculum Eastern has 
developed which shows the Uni- 
versity's willingness in new areas. 
He specifically singled out Allied 
Health, law enforcement and spe- 
cial education as new programs ex- 
emplary of Eastern's forward motion 
in societal and student oriented 
fields. 

"We've had an enormous diver- 
sity of academic changes since the 
mid 1960s," Rowlett explains. "We 
took on new commitments with un- 
versity status in 1966. At that time, 
there was a very concentrated effort 



of charting our programs, and 
great deal of our work since I 
been a matter of refining those p 
grams." 

He feels that EKU has reachf 
perhaps, a plateau in the initiati 
of new programs, stating that one 
the big challenges now is keepi]! 
the ones already in existence up 
date and developing them furth 

"Still," he says, "we must becor 
much, much more closely attun 
to the changes," indicating that t 
University, and he in particular 
his new role, must be aware of ed 
cational innovations so that Eastei 
remains informed and ready to i 
should program areas, in which t 
University could be of service, d 
velop. 

"Changes came about slower 
the past," he said, almost reminis 
ing. "Institutions had more time 
deliberate and make up their min 
about changes. Today," he co 
eluded, "we have to be ready 
change, or adjust, with the pace 
the times." 

Like so many educators who tru 
enjoy their profession, Rowie

ment of him as Vice President for Ac

misses the contact with students in 
the classroom. He will, however, 
in his new position, be able to keep 
a check on the student pulse 
through his affiliation with the Uni- 
versity Center Board and through 
the Council on Academic Affairs, 
both of which have student repre- 
sentatives. This representation gives 
the students a chance to share in 
the deliberation about curricular 
and extracurricular activities and 
Rowlett a chance to hear their view- 
points. 

Rowlett received his bachelor and 
master of science degrees in indus- 
trial arts from North Texas State and 
the doctor of education from the 
University of Illinois. 

While on leave from Eastern from 
1957-59 to work on his doctorate, 
he was an instructor of industrial 
arts at University High School, Ur- 
bana. 111. Upon his return to EKU, 
he held the successive posts of asso- 
ciate professor, professor, director 
of research, dean of the School of 
Technology, dean of College of Ap- 
plied Arts and Technology, and vice 
president. 

Rowlett served with the U.S. 
Coast Guard from Jan. 21, 1946, to 
June 30, 1947, and saw duty in the 
North Pacific and the Bering Sea. 
He has served as vice president of 
the National Association of Indus- 
trial Teacher Educators, chairman of 
the publications committee of the 
American Industrial Arts Associa- 
tion, and as president of the Ken- 
tucky Industrial Arts Association. 

He also served as a consultant 
to various national, regional and 
state organizations for research, 
vocational, industrial and technical 
education, law enforcement and

mitment and responsiveness. 



crime prevention, and other educa- 
tional fields. He is the author of 
more than 20 published articles and 
papers in his professional area. 

Along with Rowlett's appoint- 
ment came a reorganization in the 
academic structure. Other high- 
level academic appointments and 
changes approved by the EKU Board 
included: 

j> Dr. Kenneth T. Clawson from 
dean of Richmond Community Col- 
lege to dean for Academic Services, 
a new position that includes respon- 
sibilities in the supervision of the 
library, instructional media, interna- 
tional education and other services. 

Clawson received the Ph.D. in 
higher education from Florida State 
University and the bachelor of 
science and master of arts degrees 
from Appalachian State University. 
At Eastern since 1968, he was also 



acting director of Allied Health Pr< 
grams at EKU. Prior to coming 1 
Eastern, he held positions at Af 
palachian State, Abraham Baldwi 
College in Georgia, Lake City (Fla

A native of Richmond, he re- 
ceived his master of arts and bache- 
lor of science degrees from Eastern 
and his doctorate of education from 
Texas A&M University. He returned 
to Eastern in 1967 after teaching in- 
dustrial education at Texas A&M for 
three years. He previously taught 
at Jessamine County High School, 
Nicholasville, and at a Louisville 
junior high. 

Succeeding Dr. Clawson and be- 
coming dean of Allied Health Pro- 
grams is Dr. David D. Gale, formeriy 
chairman of the division of life and 
health sciences at William Rainey 
Harper College, Palatine, III. 

The regents also established a de- 
partment of communication in the 
College of Arts and Sciences to in- 



clude the bassalaureate programs in 
broadcasting, journalism and in- 
structional television. This depart- 
ment will be headed by James 
Harris, who took leave from Eastern 
the past two years to complete work 
on his doctorate at Ohio State Uni- 
versity. 

The Board created a new bache- 
lor's degree program in fashion and 
a new two-year associate degree 
program in dietetic technology. Also 
approved were cooperative engin- 
neering programs between EKU and 
Georgia Tech and the University of 
Kentucky. Students would com- 
plete the last two years of this pro- 
gram at either Tech or UK after 
three initial years of study at East- 
ern.

The Largest Colonel 
Of Them All 
Becomes A Bear 



By KARL PARK 

■JjE RUMBLED about in the EKU 
' ' defensive line for four sea- 
sons, slapping down passes (and 
passers), running down fleet- 
footed halfbacks, and just general- 
ly wreaking havoc in opposing 
offenses. 

This fall Wally Chambers, the 
most highly decorated athlete in 
Eastern Kentucky University foot- 
ball history, will be performing his 
physical feats in the National Foot- 
ball League. 

Eastern will miss Big Wally; and 
Wally says the feeling is going to 
be mutual. 




Wally Chambers took both his athletic and aca- 
demic roles at Eastern seriously. At left, Big No. 
78, strips the Indiana State quarterback of the

versity Center.

"Eastern certainly was the right 
choice for me," says Waiiy, who 
became a first-round draft choice of 
the NFL's Chicago Bears and has 
since signed reported a six-figure 
contract of an undisclosed amount. 

It didn't take Chambers long to 
develop. By the completion of his 
sophomore season at Eastern, the 
6-6, 255-pound tackle had been 
chosen on the All-Ohio Valley Con- 
ference first team, a title he was 
later to gain his senior season. 

He was selected first-team Ail- 
American by The Sporting News 
and Time magazine at the comple- 
tion of the 1972 season. 

Chambers also led the Colonels 
in tackles and assists for three 
straight seasons and was co-recip- 
ient of EKU's most valuable player 
award his senior year, along with 
linebacker Rich Thomas. 

Chambers said that despite his 
experience of usually playing 
against a smaller opponent across 

46 



the line, he expects the OVC to 
start recruiting the bigger players. 

"The OVC has been noted in the 
past for its smaller, quicker guys," 
Chambers said. "But, I believe 
everybody is trying to get the big, 
quick man now." 

Chambers joined the nation's 
other outstanding seniors in two 
post-season classics, the North- 
South Shrine game and the Senior 
Bowl contest. He credits the na- 
tional exposure he received in 
these games with his high selection 
in the first round. 

"I think 1 went into the all-star 
games as a first-round draft choice, 
but 1 believe my play in those 
games probably took me from one 
of the lower picks of the first round 
to No. 8," he said. 

The 22-year old Birmingham, 
Ala., native was not surprised at be- 
ing drafted but was somewhat 
surprised the Bears took him. 

"Although 1 had no preference as

cises. 



to which team drafted me, I was 
little surprised that Chicago drafte 
me," Chambers said. "I believe th 
Bears can be a contender in a fe\ 
years because they are basically 
young team. 

"Chicago is kind of open as fe 
as starting positions are concernec 
They haven't decided where they'r 
going to play me, although it wi 
be at either defensive end or tackle! 
Playing with Chicago is going t 
give me a better chance to come i 
and possibly start before the sec 
son's over." 

The Bears, coached by Ab 
Cibron, received the eighth pick c 
the first round of the NFL draft an 
chose Chambers. He became th| 
highest draft choice in the histotj 
of the school and the OVC. 

Chambers drew 27 profession: 
scouts to the Colonels' 1972 sprin

wore the only other jersey ever 
retired by Eastern. 

"This has been the biggest honor 
I've had while playing football. Just 
to think of all the people who have 
played sports at Eastern and know- 
ing only two have had their jerseys 
retired is something," Chambers 
said. 

One of 10 children of Mr. and 
Mrs. James Chambers who now live 
in Seattle, Wash., Chambers is 
happy with his pact with the Bears. 

"I can do some of the things now 
that I've always wanted to do for 
my folks back home since my 
future is somewhat planned for the 
next four years. Being a first round 
draft choice and signing with the 
Bears gave me a little more social 
status than I had. When I walked 
across campus, more people stop- 
ped and talked with me than be- 
fore," he said. 

Unlike some athletes who sign 
lucrative contracts with professional 
teams. Chambers continued his 




)ractice sessions and 20 of the NFL 
eams were represented at EKU 
;ames last season. Most of the 
couts went away talking of his 4.8 
Ipeed in the 40-yard dash, a fact 
'hat could sway the Bears to play 
lim at end.

Vestern basketball game, Cham- 
ers. No. 78 jersey was officially 
^tired by the University. Former 
asketball standout Jack Adams 



Unlike many top 
draft choices 
Big Wally stuck 
to his classes to 
earn a degree 



education last spring at Eastern and 
was graduated in May with a bach- 
elor of science degree in education. 
He also has completed a number 
hours of credit toward minors in 
traffic safety and recreation and 
plans to return to EKU in the off- 
season to finish those requirements. 

One of Chambers' most ardent 
supporters throughout his four-year 
career at Eastern was EKU head 
football coach Roy Kidd who help- 
ed him develop the skills to become 
Eastern's 12th Ail-American. 

"I'm very happy for Wally and 
believe he was very deserving of 
all the honors and his first round 
selection with the Bears. He is truly 
the Ail-American type, both on and 
off the field," Kidd said. 

Chambers has taken his recent 
success in stride and realizes that 
the road ahead will not be an easy 
one. 

"Professional football has better 
offenses and defenses and I'll be go- 
ing against people bigger and better 
than me on many occasions," he 
said. "But I believe I'll have my 
chance to start before the season is 
over."

a precis of news about Eastern and its Alumni 



The Campus 



For Founders Day: 
A 67th Anniversary 

Donald Bradshaw, Frankfort, for- 
mer commissioner of the state's Ex- 
ecutive Department of Administra- 
tion and Finance, was the main 
speaker at Eastern's annua! Found- 
ers Day program March 21. 

At dinner marking the 67th an- 
niversary of Eastern's founding as a 
state institution, the architects and 
engineers who designed campus 
buildings constructed since 1960 
were presented the EKU Board of 
Regents Award. Bradshaw also re- 
ceived the award. 

Founders Day commemorates the 
signature in 1906 by Governor J. C. 
W. Beckham of a legislative act 
creating Eastern Kentucky State 
Normal School from which the Uni- 
versity evolved. 

Eastern is preparing to begin cele- 
bration July 1, of the 100th anniver- 
sary of the establishment of higher 
education on its campus, dating to 
the founding of Central University 
in 1874. 

For Keen Johnson Building: 
A Change In The Name 

Eastern Kentucky University 
marked the re-opening of the Keen 
Johnson Building Jan. 23 with a din- 
ner at which Lt. Gov. Julian Carroll 
spoke. 

Eastern's regents recently changed 
the name of the structure, built in 
1939, from the Keen Johnson Stu- 
dent Union Building to the Keen 
Johnson Building and designated it, 
plus the Powell Building and the 
Chapel of Meditation, as the Uni- 
versity Center. 

The renovation of the Keen John- 
son Building included converting 
the top floor to a banquet-ballroom 
area, seating 1,000 persons, and in- 
stalling a new sound system. All

served as the cafeteria. 

The Walnut Hall and the faculty 
lounge areas on the main floor were 
refinished and the Pearl Buchanan 
Theatre was completely renovated. 
The ground floor, which housed the 
old grill and the bookstore, was 
converted into a completely mod- 
ern and enlarged bookstore. 

For Financial Aid: 
An $872 Million Bill 

President Nixon signed an $872 
million bill to fund financial aid pro- 
grams for college students during

study. National Direct Student Loan, 
and Supplemental Opportunity 
Grant. Also included was a new, 
Basic Educational Opportunity 
Grant. 

President Martin has announced

Assistance on campus has notified 
new students of tentative amounts 
of aid they may qualify for during 
the coming year. He encouraged 



returning students to check with th 
office before leaving for the sum 
mer. 

The funding breakdown, accor 
ing to Dr. Martin, indicates that a| 
proximately the same amount of ai 
money will be available to the e; 
isting programs next year as w. 
awarded at EKU in 1972-73. The e: 
act amount of Eastern funding b| 
programs will be forwarded by thj 
Department of Health, Educatio 
and Welfare in the future.

For The Vet: 
A Special Program . . . 

To get Vietnam war veterans to 
attend school under the CI Bill of 
Rights is the aim of a special pro- 
gram at EKU. 

Eastern is using a federal HEW 
grant of $75,000 to conduct the 
statewide Veterans Upward Bound 
and Talent Search program. 

"We're attempting to get as many 
unemployed veterans as possible to 
go to school," said Tom Sexton, di- 
rector of the program. 

"This means high school, voca- 
tional school, and two-year com- 
munity and junior colleges, as well 
as four-year colleges and univer- 
sities," Sexton said. 

The program is designed to assist 
the veteran to enter the institution 
lof his choice. 

. . . And A Van 

I "The rate of joblessness among 
veterans is decreasing," Kentucky 
Fifth District Congressman Tim Lee 
'Carter said recently at a Veterans 
'Administration mobile van inaugu- 
ration at EKU. 

At the ceremony, Richard L. 
Roudebush, assistant deputy ad- 
iministrator for veterans affairs, said 
!the Veterans Administration spends 
'$194 million a year serving veterans 
iin Kentucky. 

I The van will serve Eastern Ken- 
tucky by providing counseling on 
veterans' benefits. It will visit street 
corners in about a dozen Kentucky 
cities to help returning Vietnam vet- 
erans. 

For Allied Health: 
A $40,122 Grant 

I Eastern has received a continua- 
ion grant totaling $40,122 for the 
,1973-74 academic year from the De- 
oartment of Health, Education and

The Student Body 



For All Students: 
Academic Policy Changes 

Three academic policies — deal- 
ing with excessive final exams, 
transfer of credit, and changing of 
grades — were adopted recently by 
the EKU Board of Regents. 

Students now may reschedule, 
through their college dean, exam- 
inations to prevent taking more than 
three finals in a single day. 

The transfer of credits policy was 
broadened to permit the transfer- 
ring student two options on the 
transfer of his credits from another 
institution to Eastern. 

The first option is the current pol- 
icy which transfers credits from 
other institutions as a 2.0 (C) aver- 
age. The new option will allow stu- 
dents to transfer their actual grade 
point average from another institu- 
tion. 

Also adopted was a proposal for 
changing "incompletes" to letter 
grades or to withdrawal passing or 
failing. Such changes are to be in- 
itiated by the professor and sent to 
the registrar through the depart- 
ment chairman. A grade involving 
the raising or lowering of a letter 
grade will go from professor to de- 
partment chairman to college dean 
before being transmitted to the 
registrar. 

The Faculty Senate had previously 
made these recommendations to 
President Robert R. Martin. 

For Pass-Fail: 

A Successful System 

Eastern's academic "pass-fail" 
system is running smoothly, accord- 
ing to many faculty members and 
students. 

As one student put it, "Although 
some students might not work up to 
their full ability, the system does al- 
low them to take courses they want 
without the fear of making a low 
grade." 

One professor added, "I think it 
encourages students to try courses 
they would otherwise avoid. Thus, 
it encourages students to broaden 



their academic exposure." 

The student must have at least 30 
credit hours before enrolling in a 
course pass-fail. 

The course may not count to- 
ward his major or minor and may 
not be used as an elective in these 
fields. Once a student decides to 
take a course on a pass-fail basis, it 
must be approved through the dean 
of his college. 

After a student has completed a 
pass-fail course the grade is turned 
in by the instructor to the registrar. 
This is an essential point of the pro- 
gram; the teacher never knows that 
a student is on a pass-fail basis. 

Distinctive Grads: 

177 Honored Scholars 

A total of 177 graduating seniors 
were honored for academic excel- 
lence during the recent 66th annual 
spring commencement exercises at 
Eastern.

distinction", attaining an academic 
point standing of 3.6 or higher for 
at least three years of residence 
work. Another 82 graduated with

master's degrees in public adminis- 
tration from last semester. 

They were enrolled in Eastern's 
MPA program which is designed to 
meet state government's need for 
career service employees, profes- 
sionally skilled in public adminis- 
tration. The total of state em- 
ployees involved in the program 
was about 60. 

The classes are conducted in 
Frankfort during evenings by pro- 
fessors from the EKU Political 
Science Department on a rotating 
basis. 

Recreation Students: 
In Practical Situations 

Students in several classes in the 
Department of Recreation and Park 
Administration at Eastern are gain- 
ing practical experience while con- 
ducting activities that are beneficial 
to youngsters, senior citizens, and 
handicapped persons in the Blue 
Grass area. 

As end-of-the-semester projects, 
the Recreation Leadership classes 
rendered services to groups of 
senior citizens at Kenwood Nursing 
Home, Crestview Retirement Cen- 
ter and Willis Manor in Richmond; 



51 



handicapped children at the Shrin- 
ers' Crippled Children's Hospital 
and Cardinal Hill Hospital at Lex- 
ington; and primary children at 
Eastern's Model Laboratory School. 

These classes, in order to get a 
broad background in social activity 
planning, divide into three groups. 
Each group is responsible for plan- 
ning and conducting an entire event 
with a handicapped children's 
group, a kindergarten or first grade 
group, or a senior citizens group. 
No two events are ever the same. 

Doug Nieland, assistant profes- 
sor of Recreation and Park Admin- 
istration at EKU, states that one of 
the objectives in being a good 
leader is sincerity and striving for 
maximum enjoyment by all. One 
of the most important assets of the 
social activity leader, he says, is that 
of "timing." In other words, the 
leader knows when an activity is 
"worn out" and how to conclude it 
and introduce another. 

In some instances, Nieland points 
out, a great deal of motivation is 
necessary to get senior citizens to 
participate. The main reason for 
this stems from the fact that many 
have not been exposed to a great 
deal of recreation and leisure time 
activities. 

The recreation leader often en- 
counters unique situations. For in- 
stance, how does one plan a social 
activity for 30 children when five 
are in hospital beds, others in body 
casts up to their neck, three in trac- 
tion, 10 on crutches, and the rest in 
wheelchairs? This is when activi- 
ties must be adapted to fit the needs 
of the individuals. 

Activities for the senior citizens 
also call for creativity. Nieland sug- 
gests, as guidelines for the stud- 
dents, games that were played in 
their era, Biblical quizzes and 
games, bingo, and musical games. 

After the classes have conducted 
the activity events, evaluation takes 
place back in the classroom. Here 
the students comment on how 
happy the people appear during the 
activities and realize the inner re- 
wards and values of such learning 
situations and services.

Paul D. Blanchard: 

Exploring School Boards 

The April issue of School an' 
Community magazine carries a 
article by Paul D. Blanchard, assist 
ant professor of political science i 
Eastern, on what kinds of schoc 
board members are favorable t 
participation by teachers in polic 
making.

THE EASTERN KENTUCKY UNIVERSITY ALUMNU 



The article states that "board 
members who are young, inexperi- 
enced, highly educated individuals, 
particularly females and profession- 
als" are more favorable. 

In addition, the article says, mem- 
bers of boards dominated by the 
superintendent where moderate 
conflict is present also tend to be 
favorable. 

A favorable attitude toward 
teacher participation is associated 
yvith "a positive orientation to the 
t'ole of the federal government in 
education and the belief that de- 
segregation is proceeding at too 
deliberate a pace," the article points 
put. 

1 These conclusions are reached, 
|3lanchard said, from responses to 
questionnaires by more than 500 
Kentucky school board members.

For Health Professions: 
Less Personnel Shortage 

Eastern is well underway toward 
relieving a personnel shortage in al- 
lied health. 

Allied Health personnel includes 

— accordng to the U.S. Department 
o1 Health, Education, and Welfare 

— all professional, technical, and 
assisting workers in patient care, 
community health, and health re- 
search who supplement the work of 
doctors and administrators. 

Eastern offers 18 degrees or areas 
of concentration in 17 allied health 
professions. Four of EKU's five col- 
leges are directly involved in allied 
health programs. 

Eastern offers associate of arts 
(two-year) degrees in food service 
technology, nursing, medical record 
technology, clinical medical assist- 
ing, and administrative medical as- 
sisting. 

Baccalaureate (four-year) degrees 
are offered in school health, public 
health (which includes majors in 
community health and environmen- 
tal sanitation, speech pathology and 
audiology, dietetics, rehabilitation 



54 



counseling, medical technology, 
nursing and social work. 

Many agencies provide training 
outside the classroom for EKU al- 
lied health students — for example, 
15 central Kentucky hospitals. 

Eastern lays claim to offering 
more allied health programs and to 
graduating more nurses (two and 
four year degrees) than any other 
institution in Kentucky. Eastern has 
the only medical record technology 
program in Kentucky, one of the 
largest in the country. 

As part of its baccalaureate de- 
gree program. Eastern also offers 
areas of concentration in corrective 
therapy, manual arts therapy, thera- 
peutic recreation, and educational 
therapy. 

In addition, EKU offers seven pre- 
professional curricula for students 
who plan to transfer to a profession- 
al school of medicine, dentistry, vet- 
erinary medicine, optometry, phys- 
ical therapy, dental hygiene, or 
pharmacy.

Scotching Fear Of Snakes 

You cannot tell the age of a rat- 
tlesnake by the number of rattles, 
says the new book, Snakelore, writ- 
ten by two members of the Eastern 
biology faculty. 

Professor A. L. Whitt, Jr. says he 
and Assistant Professor Mary Mc- 
Glasson wrote the book to disprove 
some "old wives' tales" concerning 
snakes and "dispel much of the un- 
necessary fear associated with 
snakes." 

Some of the false snake "lore" in 
the book includes these myths: 

Snakes do not die until sundown. 
Snakes must coil in order to strike. 
Whiskey is good for snakebites. 
Snakes bite and kill themselves to 
avoid capture. All snakes are 
poisonous. Snakes charm their 
prey. Snakes will suck cows. 

The book, published by Whip- 
poorwill Press, Frankfort, is in book- 
stores. The illustrator is Sandy 
Whitt Burrow, Whitt's daughter. 



Neoplatonism Conference: 
For World Scholars 

About 30 scholars from the U.S 
Canada, England, and Greece pai 
ticipated in a conference on Nee 
platonism and contemporary phi 
osophy at Eastern earlier this year. 
Some of the "distinguished schol 
ars" attending the conference 
sponsored by the EKU philosoph 
department, were: 

Dr. John N. Findlay, professor c 
philosophy, Boston University; Di 
Evanghelos A. Moutsopoulos, pro 
fessor of philosophy. University c 
Athens, Greece; Dr. L. C. WesterinH 
professor of classics, State Univerl 
sity of New York at Buffalo; Di 
Henry J. Blumenthal, professor c 
Greek, University of Liverpool, Eng 
land. 

Harris said others attending whi 
have published major books o 
Neoplatonism are Dr. John M. Ris 
chairman graduate department c 
classical studies. University of Tor 
onto; Dr. John N. Deck, professor c 
philosophy. University of Windsoi 
and Dr. Richard T. Wallis, professoj 
of classics. University of Oklahoma 
Dr. R. Baine Harris, EKU, is d^ 
rector and organizer of the confer| 
ence which is financed in part b 
the Matchette Foundation. Paperi 
read and discussed at the confer 
ence will be published later in 
book. 

Members on the planning com 
mittee with Harris are Findlay; Di 
John Anton, chairman philosoph 
department, Emory University, am 
Dr. John Fisher, chairman phi 
osophy department. Temple Uni 
versity. 

Harris said the conference, deal 
ing with the contemporary revalu 
ation of Neoplatonism, is the firs 
on this topic held in the wester 
hemisphere. Neoplatonism is th' 
philosophy built on the thought o 
Plotinus (204-270 A.D.) which ha 
been "very influential" on the de 
velopment of western philosoph 
and western Christian theology 
Harris said.

BobMulcahy/55: 
Coaching the Colonels 

Bob Mulcahy had some delays in 
reporting to Eastern Kentucl<y Uni- 
versity in early April to assume his 
new position as the Colonels' head 
basketball coach. 

People kept waving him down on 
the interstate to congratulate him 
and wish him good luck. 

"I thought something was wrong 
with my car until the second per- 
son had waved me over," Mulcahy 
stated. "They were people who 
recognized me, or my South Dakota 
plates on the car. It was really 
gratifying." 

The 41 -year-old Eastern and Lex- 
'ington Lafayette High School gradu- 
ate was announced April 2 as the 
successor to Guy Strong who left 
EKU after six years to become head 
coach at Oklahoma State University. 

In an interview shortly after his 
.arrival on the EKU campus, Mulcahy 
said his first task as the new Colonel 
coach would be to "follow up on all 
the commitments the Eastern 
basketball program has made in re- 
cruiting." 

"However, we don't plan to stop 
'here. We intend to expand our 
recruiting with other athletes as 
time permits. We believe in re- 
cruiting the closest people we can 
get to the campus. We do not plan 
to limit or exclude someone, how- 
lever, who could help our program," 
,he continued. 

Mulcahy signed four outstanding 
high school players to grants-in-aid 
last spring. 

Joining the Colonel ranks were 
6-3 wingman Don Morris of Cin- 
cinnati, Ohio; 6-9 center Steve 
Banks of Whitesburg; 6-4 wingman 
Michael Oyer of Waverly, Ohio; and 
'6-3 guard Larry Blackford of Ver- 
sailles who played at Woodford 
County High School. 

Morris, who played at Withrow 
|High School with Eastern sopho- 
more David Routt, set a school 
single game scoring record last sea- 

SUMMER, 1973 




Coach Bob Mulcahy, '55 
. . . leading basketball Colonels 

son with 41 points, while averaging 
14 points and 10 rebounds and 
being named the team's most valu- 
able player. 

Listed as one of the top 500 re- 
cruits in the country by one publi- 
cation, Banks was an honorable 
mention all-state selection for three 
years, averaging 24.5 points and 16 
rebounds last year. 

Oyer, a two-year all-state choice 
and most valuable player in the 
Southeast Conference, averaged 
17.3 points and 10.5 rebounds in 
the '72-73 season. 

A second-team all-state selection 
his senior year, Blackford led his 
squad in assists, rebounds and field 
goal percentage while becoming the 
first Woodford County player to 
make the Kentucky high school all- 
star team. He averaged 19.1 points 
and 10.3 rebounds last season. 

Mulcahy also reviewed his coach- 
ing style and the type of offense and 
defense he plans to employ at East- 
ern. 

"Offensively, we plan on run- 
ning, when possible, although we 
will have patterns we will use when 
we set up the basketball. We like 
to emphasize the quick turnover. 
We believe that one of the best 
times to utilize the fast break is 
after our opponents have scored. 
Many times while they're celebrat- 
ing, you can counter with a quick 
basket. 



"Although we will have some- 
what of a controlled offense, we 
will let our individuals use their 
native ability whenever possible. 

"On defense, we will be basically 
a man-to-man ball club with some 
use of the zone and half-court zone 
trap when needed. A good, strong 
man-to-man defense is the basis of 
all good defenses that we could 
play." 

Mulcahy said, "We're glad to be 
coming home to Eastern. This uni- 
versity gave me the opportunity to 
get a college education, and the 
further we go in the coaching field, 
we realize more and more the im- 
portance of an education." 

A two-time All-Stater and a high 
school All-America under Ralph 
Carlisle at Lexington Lafayette, Mul- 
cahy led the Generals to a state 
championship before coming to 
Eastern to star for Paul McBrayer 
from 1950-54. 

After graduation from Eastern, he 
served as an assistant to McBrayer 
for one season before spending 
two years as a 1st lieutenant in the 
U.S. Army. He returned to basket- 
ball and coaching in 1958 when he 
was the first coach at then newly 
created Seneca High School. In five 
varsity seasons there, he compiled a 
124-14 record, capped by back-to- 
back Kentucky state championships 
in 1963 and 1964. 

The Louisville Courier-Journal 
named him the Kentucky Prep 
Coach of the Decade for the 1960's, 
and from 1960-63 he was a Coach- 
of-the-Year selection in several 
polls. 

Before going to South Dakota, he 
was assistant coach at the University 
of Kansas under Ted Owens, serv- 
ing as freshman coach while direct- 
ing scouting and recruiting. 

His teams at the University of 
South Dakota won a six-year total of 
91 games while losing 60. He is 
number two in all-time total wins 
at South Dakota but boasts the best 
winning percentage in the school's 
history. He was North Central Con- 



55 



ference "Coach of the Year" in 
1972 when his team won the league 
crown. 

He is married to the former 
Jennie Chattin of Ashland. They 
have two children, Emily, 16, and 
Rob, seven.

The Eels: 

Winning With Adversity 

"We were real pleased with the 
efforts our young men put forth un- 
der rather trying circumstances," 
said Eastern head swimming coach 
Donald Combs as he summed up 
his squad's 1972-73 season. 

The Eels, who finished 9-2 in 
dual meet action and won their 11th 
consecutive Kentucky Intercollegi- 
ate Swimming Championship, suf- 
fered through illness and other ad- 
versities all season long. 

"We lost six swimmers and two 
divers this past season for one rea- 
son or another and all but one of 
these were on scholarship," Combs 
said. "But what we had left swam 
tough." 



In the KISC meet, won by Eastern 
with 581.5 points, Combs cited five 
individuals — John Davenport, Wes 
Arnold, Kevin Miles, Terry Stoddard 
and Tom Houchin — as turning in 
outstanding performances. 

Davenport, the lone senior and 
captain of the team, won the 200- 
yd. breaststroke, the 200-yd. indi- 
vidual medley, the 400-yd. individu- 
al medley and was a member of the 
victorious Eastern 400-yd. medley 
relay team. He also finished sec- 
ond in the 100-yd. breaststroke. He 
added a second place finish in the 
100-yd. butterfly. 

Arnold took first place for the Eels 
in the 100 and 200-yd. backstroke 
and was also a member of the 400- 
yd. medley relay team. 

Miles won the 50 and 200-yd. 
freestyle and was part of the win- 
ning 800-yd. freestyle relay squad. 
He took second in the 100-yd. free- 
style and was a member of the sec- 
ond place 400-yd. freestyle relay 
team. 

Stoddard swam like an experi- 
enced veteran, according to Combs. 
He set KISC records in copping the 
500 and 1,650-yd. freestyle, took 
third in the 200-yd. freestyle and 
swam a leg of the 800-yd. freestyle 
relay squad. 

Included in those nine victories 
for the Eels were wins over Indiana 
State, Ohio University, University of 
Cincinnati, University of Kentucky 
and Vanderbilt University. 

The two losses came at the hands 
of Southeastern Conference powers 
Alabama and Georgia who finished 
third and fifth, respectively, recent- 
ly in the SEC meet. 

"This group was the best mentally 
prepared and easiest team to coach 
since we've been here," Combs 
concluded. "We've never had a 
better team effort than was given in 
our meets throughout the year." 



Spring Sports: 
Back In The Pack 

A sixth place and two fourth pla 
finishes were the final results i 
Eastern's squads in the annual Oh 
Valley Conference spring spo 
championships held at Moreheac 

Eastern's tennis squad placi 
sixth, while the EKU golf and tra 
teams finished fourth. 

Eastern picked up six points 
the tournament to go along witWi 
total of 22 it had recorded durij; 
the regular season. Coach Tcu 
Higgins' tennis squad finished l|- 
15 on the season in dual mat i 
competition. 

Coach Glenn Presnell's golfe 
who finished 14-2 on the seaso, 
shot a 54-hole score of 1127 i 
place fourth in the golf competitio, 

In track, EKU's Tyrone Harbut atl 
Dan Watson were individual char^ 
pions in the 220-yard dash and po}: 
vault, respectively. 

Harbut, a sophomore from Le 
ington, sped to a 20.9 220 to set 
new school record and come with 
one-tenth of a second of the OV!

Dr. jerry Keuper Gave Florida A FIT 

DR. JERRY KEUPER, '40-'43, has given the state of Florida a FIT— or th 
Florida Institute of Technology if you prefer. 

Located on approximately 100 acres near Port Malabar in Melbourm 
the school is the product of a dream, dedication, and hard work by I 
founder and only president, Dr. Keuper. 

A former research physicist in the early 50's, Dr. Keuper had served o 
the faculty of Bridgeport Engineering Institute and later joined the Radi 
Corporation of America as the Manager of RCA Systems Analysis, which wi 
the group of scientists and engineers who had the responsibility for evalua 
ing the accuracy of all tracking instrumentation on the Air Force Eastern Te 
Range. 

But, despite his success in this field. Dr. Keuper saw a need for an eng 
neering school in the Cape Kennedy area. 

So, in 1958 he founded Florida Institute of Technology to meet thi 
need. 

Today, some 2,000 students are enrolled in the 15-year-old school an 
its founder and president has hopes that his dream will continue to grow. 

"We're geared for 2,000 students," he says, "and we don't plan to g 
over that. The reason is simple — quality. Why, last year alone we turne 
down 45 percent of our new applications. The result is a concentration c 
the most qualified students. By keeping our enrollment within certain level 
we insure quality education for the most qualified students. And this kind i 
situation naturally attracts the most qualified professors." 

FIT also sports some interesting advantages. Aerospace Technical Ir 
stitute and Hydrospace Technical Institute are established affiliates. It hc| 
its own fleet, including research vessels, a plush houseboat for visiting dign 
taries, and several yachts which serve the Hydrospace Technical Institute. 

The campus also boasts a new and fully-equipped auditorium and gyrr 
nasium, a new science building, and Cobalt 60 facilities for teaching an 
research. 

"The aim," according to one official, "is to develop into a small, high 
quality institution for scientists and engineers." 

All this because Dr. jerry Keuper saw a need and met it.

Alumni Report 



Alumni Day — The Grads Come Home Again 



A LUMNI DAY 1973 was the big 
'* event of the year for the 
Alumni Association and the five re- 
union classes of 1913, 1923, 1933, 
1948, and 1958. From the class of 
1913 we had three to return — Miss 
Elizabeth L. Bertram, Vanceburg; 
Mrs. Alma Lake, Berea; and Mrs. 
Mabel Crowder Murphy, Athens. 

The 1923 class returned 14 mem- 
bers; the 1933 class, 27 members; 
the 1948 class, 30 members and the 
1958 class, 35 members. Pictures 
of the reunion classes appear else- 
where in this issue of the Alumnus. 

Besides the reunion classes we 
had two members of the Pioneers 
to return — Mr. Leslie Anderson 
and Mr. C. H. Cifford of the 1909 
class. Mr. Anderson was accom- 
panied from Texarkana, Texas by his 
wife, and a brother, Mr. Daniel 
Anderson and Mrs. Anderson came 
from Columbus, Ohio to be with 
him. Mr. Cifford, a great benefac- 
tor of EKU, resides in Katonah, New 
York. 

The Alumni chapters that held 
meetings and of which we received 
reports were: Perry county, Creater 
Cincinnati, and Creater Louisville. 
The Perry county chapter had two 
meetings, one of which was to cele- 
brate their ten years of continuous 
meetings twice a year. Bill Shannon 
of the faculty at EKU was speaker at 
that meeting. Mrs. Helen Hall, 
president; Dr. Lawrence Wagers, 
vice president; and Mrs. N. C. 
Napier are the officers for the com- 
ing year. 

The Creater Louisville chapter se- 
lected Ronald Sherrard as president 
and Densil Ramsey as president- 
elect for the new year at their meet- 
ing held in Louisville in March. 

The Creater Cincinnati chapter 
which met in April at the Town 
and Country restaurant, Covington, 
elected Afton Kordenbrock, presi- 
dent; Bob Nordheim, vice presi- 
dent; Judy Alderson, secretary, and 
Bill Dosch, treasurer. The South 



Florida chapter, under the presi- 
dency of Dr. Donald D. Michelson, 
met in May. 

Homecoming will be held this 
year on October 20th, with Western 
as our football opponent. The 
classes of 1963 and 1968 will have 
their first class reunion at this time. 

The Alumni Association and alJ of 
you members who helped in any 
way in getting the Chapel of Medi- 
tation should be very happy to 
know that it is being used exten- 
sively by our students for their 
spiritual well being. Chaplain 
Ceorge Nordgulen is very delighted 
with the students' use. On Alumni 
Day the chapel was booked 
throughout the afternoon with stu- 
dent weddings. 

The Alumni welcomes Bob Mul- 
cahy, '55, as head basketball coach, 
and Jennie Chattin Mulcahy, '55, 
back to the campus and wishes the 
best to former coach Guy Strong, 
'55, and Aileen, in Stillwater, Okla- 
homa, where Guy will be head 
basketball coach at Oklahoma State 
University. 

The Alumni Association is proud 
of their selection for this year's out- 
standing Alumnus. Karl Dean Bays, 
'55, our unanimous choice has for 
years been highly considered. Each 
year this young man, who is presi- 
dent and chief executive officer of 
American Hospital Supply corpora- 
tion and subsidiaries, adds more to 
his successful business career. His 
picture will be placed in the Alumni 
House with past recipients and his 
name added to the plaque of out- 
standing alumni that is on display 
in the Keen Johnson building on 
campus. 

Members of the classes of 1914, 
1924, 1934, and 1949, and 1959 will 
be scheduled for reunions in May 
1974. This should be a great day 
as Eastern will be celebrating its 
Centennial Year of higher educa- 
tion of the present campus.

Nostalsia 



(Continued from page 13) 

unnecessary. But then the war was 
over and enrollments once again 
took an upward swing. 

After the influx of returning vet- 
erans there was a 15-year period 
when growth was more or less 
steady. Some six or eight buildings 
were constructed and the number 
of students reached 2,000. During 
this period Eastern kept abreast of 
the times and continued to provide 
for the needs of its students. I as a 
high school teacher was anxious to 
use whatever influence I had to con- 
vince students that Eastern was still 
a friendly place and that here the 
education they received would be 
in a direct proportion to the work 
they put into it. Without exception 
those whose arms I twisted returned 
to tell me that they had made a good 
choice. 

Not one of you is unaware of the 
phenomenal growth of Eastern dur- 
ing the past 13 years. Suffice it to 
say that two-thirds of the buildings 
that are here today have been con- 
structed during that period. And 
that the enrollment has increased 
by more than 400 per cent. In these 
respects Eastern is not unlike other 
universities. The "war Babies" 
swelled the enrollments of colleges 
and universities across the nation. 
To provide adequate housing and 
classroom facilities a building boom 
took place everywhere. 

Important, too, is the tremendous 
impact the increased enrollments 
had on faculties. The demand ex- 
ceeded the supply — and thereby 
hangs a tale. Many positions were 
filled with young PhD's fully qual- 
ified in everything save experience. 
Some of these simply from the lack 
of experience, others motivated by 
their own personal philosophies 
and others, 1 fear, from their desire 
to gain the reputation of being a 
popular instructor, allied themselves 
with student causes, stopped teach- 
ing and went to meddling. Students 
feeling that they had faculty sup- 
port were in no way hesitant to ap- 
ply pressure to gain their demands. 
Many administrators took the path 
of least resistance and yielded to 
the demands. It was sort of like a 
wage-price spiral; the more the de- 
mands were granted the more the 
demands became, and for a couple 
of years it looked as though higher 
education as we had known it was 
doomed. 



Recently at a meeting of student 
affairs staffs from throughout the 
state, we had four very articulate stu- 
dents from one of our sister institu- 
tions tell us what they expected 
from Student affairs. The term "stu- 
dent needs" was used time and time 
again. And they were in total agree- 
ment that they didn't want to be 
treated with paternalism by any 
administrator or teacher — but they 
wanted Help from all. After the dis- 
cussion when the atmosphere was 
more informal, I had an opportunity 
to talk with these students. I re- 
marked on the frequency of the 
word needs and asked the young 
lady if she thought there was any 
difference between "Needs" and 
"wants". "Oh, yes," she answered. 
"How do you determine the dif- 
ference?" I inquired. And with great 
authority she replied, "if the major- 
ity of the students want it it is a 
need" And when 1 tried to get a 
definition of paternalism, they had 
no clear cut meaning. I came to the 
conclusion that saying "No" to 
something they want is paternalism, 
and saying yes is help. 



dents to seek identity within a small 
close knit group that a fraternity can 
give. 

Eastern's philosophy that educa- 
tion takes place outside the class- 
room as well as inside it, led to the 
development of a Residence Hall 
Program in which opportunity is 
available to every dorm resident to 
take part in activities for cultural, 
social or educational enrichment. 
This program is in its third year, and 
already the impetus for it is coming 
from the students themselves. More 
and more students are taking ad- 
vantage of the opportunity to learn 
a useful craft or a leisure time 
activity that will afford them plea- 
sure long after they have left East- 
ern. From what I have said here to- 
night, it is, I think, evident that the 
men who have served as Presidents 
of Eastern have all had the ability 
and the foresight to be two jumps 
ahead of the hounds. They have 
been able to distinguish between 
wants and needs, and they have 
communicated these need to the 
Boards of Regents in such a way 
that they have always been able to 



// 



. . . it's not always what you want 
that is good for you . 



With these kinds of ideas pre- 
valent among students everywhere 
in these days of instant communica- 
tion and peer group pressure for 
Eastern to have emerged from this 
period unscathed would have been 
a thorn in the flesh and a blot on 
the escutcheon of some few self 
styled student leaders. To push Dr. 
Martin around literally would be a 
man size chore; figuratively it's 
even more difficult. He was reared, 
as I was, on the philosophy that it's 
not always what you want that is 
good for you, and he made this 
perfectly clear to all. 

I have said many times to stu- 
dents, and I say to you, that no per- 
son in the field of education is more 
sympathetic to the NEEDS of stu- 
dents than is the President of East- 
ern. Evidence of that is given by 
what has happened here during 
the last thirteen years. You all 
know about the many new academic 
programs that have been initiated 
and the facilities constructed for 
both academic and social activities, 
but how many of you know that 
on Eastern's campus are now chap- 
ters of 13 national fraternities and 8 
national sororities? Their being here 
is because it was clearly demon- 
strated that in Bigness, togetherness 
is lost. There was a need for stu- 



effect the changes that best serve a 
changing student population. 

Almost 2,000 years ago Horace 
wrote What Times, What Customs. 
Sometimes I am tempted to repeat 
those words and shake my head, 
but mostly I agree with Helen Keller 
who wrote: "It is not possible for 
civilization to flow backward while 
there is youth in the world. 

"Youth may be headstrong, but it 
will advance its allotted length. 
Through the ages the battle with 
powers of evil — with poverty, 
misery, ignorance, war, ugliness and 
slavery, youth has steadily turned on 
the enemy. That is why I never 
turn away from the new generation 
impatiently because of its knowing- 
ness. Through it alone shall salva- 
tion come." 

1 have all the faith in the world 
that 40 years from tonight someone 
will be standing here as 1 stand to- 
night, and that person will be refer- 
ring to the good old days of the 
70's, 80's and 90's, and saying that 
Eastern was living up to its purpose 
— service to the needs of its stu- 
dents. So I say: 

Hail to Thee, our Alma Mater 

Faithful guide of youth. 

long may you hold high amid 

the darkness, 

duty light and truth.

WINTER 1974/VOLUME 13 NO. 1 




Alumnus Editorial 




THE EKU ALUMNI Association, 
whose first major gift to the Uni- 
versity was the Alumni Century 
Fund-financed Chapel of Medita- 
tion, has decided, through the 
Association's Executive Commit- 
tee, to make another gift to the 
University in the form of a lasting 
monument to help commemorate 
the observance of the Centennial 
Year. 

The gift that was decided on 
seems to reflect significantly on 
the nature of America, Kentucky, 
Eastern and its graduates. Many 
persons feel that if you could 
draw a single stereotype of the 
American experience it would 
have to be something that would 
capture the country's pioneer 
heritage and spirit. 



America's obsession with fron- 
tiers and goals has been one of 
the major formative forces in the 
development of this country, and 
by the same token, in the devel- 
opment of institutions like East- 
ern Kentucky University. 

Eastern's closeness to the pio- 
neer image is obvious. Daniel 
Boone opened middle America to 
westward expansion in this very 
county. His statue in front of the 
Keen Johnson Building is a daily 
reminder of our pioneer begin- 
nings. Then, it seems only fitting 
that the modern Eastern, which 
has been a pioneer among 
the nation's regional universities, 
should have some marker com- 
memorating the achievements of 
a modern pioneer. 



The Alumnus magazine feels 
that nothing symbolizes modern 
America's continuation of the pi- 
oneer spirit more than the space 
program of recent years, climaxed 
when Neil Armstrong stepped 
from his Eagle spacecraft to the 
surface of the moon. The Alumni 
Association was also very fortu- 
nate in securing the services of 
sculptor Felix deWeldon to de- 
sign and execute the statue for 
our campus. The Alumnus cer- 
tainly endorses the project and 
urges alumni everywhere to sup- 
port the Association in its fund 
raising project to make this a last- 
ing monument to the 100th year 
of higher education on the East- 
ern campus.

IVINTER, 1974 



Notes . . . From The Editor's Desk 



WE SURELY want to remind EKU 
alumni of the wonderful opportun- 
ity to participate in giving the Uni- 
versity a fitting gift during the Cen- 
tennial Year. A feature article on 
page 20 of this issue of the Alumnus 
and an advertisement on the inside 
back cover give the details of this 
project to which we ask that you 
give your consideration. 

The Centennial Year is one of the 
major events in the development of 
the University and we are happy 
that the Executive Committee of the 
Alumni Association saw fit to em- 
bark on this new fund raising drive. 
The next issue of the magazine will 
include listings of Centennial Club 
members, the Men and Women of 
Eastern, and the Alumni Honor Roll. 

— EKU — 



WE ARE RAPIDLY approaching the 
midpoint of the Centennial Year 
and many significant programs have 
already been conducted and others 
are planned. 

One of the most important pro- 
grams took place January 13 when 
the Jane F. Campbell Building, East- 
ern's new facility for the fine arts 
was dedicated. Of course we all re- 
member the late Miss Campbell for 
her many years of service to the 
institution and for her wonderful 
bequest to the University that es- 



tablished a fine program of scholar- 
ships for worthy music students. 

Two other fine people were also 
honored by having facilities in the 
building named for them. The Clar- 
ence H. Cifford Theatre honors a 
distinguished member of the Pio- 
neer Class of 1909 who has certainly 
been one of the institution's leading 
benefactors. The Fred P. Giles Gal- 
lery, which was the site of a Cen- 
tennial Exhibition that opened ded- 
ication day, bears the name of the 
long-time head of the Department 
of Art, the late Dr. Giles. 

Another major program, still in 
the development stages, is for an 
outdoor dramatic pageant chroni- 
cling the historical development of 
Eastern. Eben Henson, noted direc- 
tor of the Kentucky theatre program, 
has been commissioned to develop 
the pageant, and the event, sched- 
uled for late April, promises to be 
worthwhile. 

And, of course Alumni Day-Com- 
mencement weekend will be a even 
more special occasion during the 
Centennial Year. Among the sched- 
uled activities are the unveiling of 
the statue to be funded through the 
Centennial Club fund drive, the offi- 
cial presentation of the Chapel of 
Meditation and its property to the 
University, and the Centennial Year 
Commencement exercises. The pre- 



sentation of the Outstanding Alur 
nus also takes special significam 
during the Centennial Year.

The Prologue: Making Preparations 






(-VERYONE HAD AGED a bit th 
*■ homecoming — the year, tP; 
graduates, and Eastern. But, noii 
was the worse for wear. 

The year, well toward the end 
its time, was radiant in the fall. Pe- 
haps the glint in its eye came frok 
the centennial festivities that hJl 
been planned for the annual g^ 
together. | 

The graduates came back by th 
hundreds, and they too reveled i 
the birthday celebration with chil' 
hood enthusiasm despite tli 
changes time had brought up(i 
them. 

And, there was Eastern, now 
symbol of service, that stood proi 
in the autumn sunshine. After 1(^ 
years, she was still strong in h' 
educational traditions. 

The only group that hadn't agf 
enough was the young footbi 
Colonels who couldn't contain tt' 
more experienced Hilltoppers fro 
Bowling Green and Western cast t\ 
only dark cloud on the day, 35-0. 

There was, of course, a beginnir; 
to all the hoopla. Four months agi

with friends, tuck thousands of napkin

eei<end theme. 

Plans continued to materialize as 
ands were contacted, judges lined

tention that they always get once

The week before the big week- 
id, students braved cool nights, 
id-term exams, and portable toi- 
ts in a warehouse to stuff floats

apkins, one joined the parade two 
ocks late, but all helped alumni

elped make Eastern a special place.

elings of many with its theme,

The students had made other 
|ans to welcome graduates and 
ends back to the campus. Some 
campus organizations entered 
|jeen candidates in a campus-wide 
action to select the fifteen finalists 
ho were judged during the week- 
,id. The girls sported varied back- 
,ounds that made the judges' de- 
iion very difficult. One was a 17 
.ar-old beauty from Venezuela

an two months; another was the 
it girl for the baseball Colonels; 
.other ran on the track team.

^cond consecutive year, Keene

Ling sophomore from La Grange, 
;reamed when her name was an- 
iiunced during the pre-game cere- 
ipnies.

The weekend opened formally with 
a dance in the Keen Johnson Building 
where students "danced" to the mu-

this before!" For some, the dance 
was a gyrating experience.

urday morning parade. Two even 
sported vintage cars — a Packard 
and Model T — to go along with 
their costumes. For many viewing 
the marching through downtown 
Richmond, history experienced a 
beautiful revival. 

Friday night, CWENS, the sopho- 
more women's honorary, planned 
the annual Homecoming Dance 
which had been discontinued last 
year while the Keen Johnson Build- 
ing was undergoing renovation. 
Their theme, "Happy Birthday, EKU" 
featured balloons, mock presents, 
ten-foot candles, and a giant birth- 
day cake. The Livingston Road pro- 
vided the music as students danced 
in the weekend. Said one 1938 grad 
Heman Fulkerson from Alton, Illi- 
nois, who happened on the scene

Act II: the Parade 





Everybody loves a parade whether he's a young pre-schoolib 
server ( left), the Grand Marshal like Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Wnai 
(above), or one of the Shriners who entertained in their vingi 
buggies, (center left). Completing the parade were floats |ki 
the colorful sunflowers (lower right) and the winning floa io 
Beauty from the Baptist Student Union featuring the old Colfel 
along with the homecoming queen candidates who, like C\& 
Fisher (below) dressed in period costumes and rode in vlnjgi 
automobiles when they could be found.

luring a lively number, "I've never 
een anything like this before." As 
t turned out, neither had many 
ithers. 

For the first time in four years, the 
aturday morning of Homecoming 
iVeekend dawned without the 
hreat of rain. The Keen Johnson 
luilding (formerly the Student 
Jnion Building) was open for regis- 
ration this year after a one-year 
enovation. It literally hummed with 
riendly conversation as returning 
rads stopped to register and find 
lUt where things were going to 
lappen. 

Earlier, before many were awake, 

he first annual Arlington Golf 

ournament was played on the 

jourse just outside town. Earlier this 

'ear, the second nine holes of the 

curse were officially opened and 

eturning linkers gave it its first 

omecoming test. The winner 

jrned out to be the only lady en-

b fashion.

Mona smiled for the photographers who caught her radiant 
surprise. 



been doing anything; we're not go- 
ing to the game or anything, we just 
wanted to see who was coming!" 
Others from both classes had to 
steal glances at name badges to 
make accurate recollections or add 
married names to maiden ones . . . 
but finding out that time changes 
everyone made the effort worth- 
while. 

At noon while the reunion groups 
tossed biographical data from table 
to table, others attended the buffet 
in the ballroom of the Johnson 
Building. The fete has become an 
annual attraction and one first-time 
guest exclaimed, "I should have 
taken my camera!" Opinions agreed 
that the lavish spread tasted as good 
as it looked. 

For many, unofficial pre-game ac- 
tion included a look around the 
University Center. For many, the 
Park Fountain, Chapel of Meditation 
and Powell Building were complete- 
ly new and many wondered what it 
would have been like if such facil- 
ities had been built years ago. 

Official pre-game action featured 
the presentation of the queens amid 
the rumble of old friends who were 



still sharing conversation leftovers 
from the luncheons. The Marching 
Maroons . . . the Scabbard and 
Blade . . . the usual ... 

Dr. Robert R. Martin crowned and 
kissed the new queen as the pho- 
tographers snapped the moment. 
Then the National Anthem . . . and 
the Alma Mater . . . and then . . . 

. . . then there was the game. The; 
old Normal School Number 2 from 
Bowling Green brought its own ver- 
sion of the Big Red Machine to 
Hanger Field and although it sput- 
tered occasionally, it still had 
enough speed and savvy to best the 
Maroon men from Normal Number 
1. E mums were reduced to $1.50 
for quick sale; the stands were dot- 
ted with coke cups and empty bot- 
tles of harder stuff. Programs lay 
wrinkled and creased in the metal 
seats. Homecomers had moved on 
to more important things . . . 

The evening found smaller circles 
of friends socializing in fraternity 
houses, or in homes of Richmond 
friends. Some braved the concert in 
Alumni Coliseum and were delight- 
ed to hear the "Golden Age of 
Rock" come alive with the groups

Act IV: the People 




But, homecomings are people and 
whether they showed the more subdued 
enthusiasm of the over thirty set (left), 
or revel in the uninhibited cheering of 
the present student body (center, be- 
low), it was a day of emotion for all 
who came to create and re-create 
memories. 





from another era. The stufdent turn 
out was light, but before the concer 
was over, the kids were dancing ii 
the aisles. The Dovells, The Fivij 
Satins, Danny and the Juniors wen 
among others who proved that thi 
golden oldies still were. It was trui'] 
an evening of memories as "At thil 
Hop," "The Bristol Stomp", an(} 
"The Twist" lived again as th« 
"now" generation had great fuij 
with the "then" music which com 
manded the stomping of bobb' 
socks in the fifties. i 

The only disappointed were thosd 
who didn't attend. 

By Monday, many sagging float 
still remained undismembered if 
their temporary parking lot. The en 
thusiasm of the weekend had mad( 
their dismantling seem like the de 
struction of the most importan 
weekend in a hundred years • • • i

ict V: the Game 






Homecomings are, very often, 
similar, but the one which marks the 
centennial of memories will have to 
be special. Said one second guess- 
er, "If we'd only gone for a touch- 
down in that first quarter instead of 
that field goal . . ." Admitted an- 
other, "They were just too good . . ." 

But for many, the game was not 
the most important event of the 
weekend — it was the news of old 
friends that made the day . . . 

A Century of Memories, 1874- 
1974 — from Old Central University 
to EKU — it was a time for grads 
to look back and look ahead . . . 
and be proud of what they saw in 
both directions.

Bobby Lewis (above) leads an all-star cast 
into "The Golden Age of Rock" as the week- 
end came to a rolicking close. Grads reminised 
as old familiar groups like Danny and the 
Juniors, The Dovells, and The Five Satins 
filled Alumni Coliseum with the sounds of 
the fifties.

By RON C. WOLFE 
Assistant Director of Alumni Affairs 



The birth of higher education occurred in 
1874 as Chancellor Robert Breck took the 
responsibility of raising a fledgling institu- 
tion of higher education in Richmond — 
Central University. 



Bl centennial year, one-fiun- 
' * dred years of experience all 
standing today in a multi-million 
dollar, multi-purpose institution of 
the 20th century. 

From Central University to Eastern 
Kentucky LJniversity . . . reflective 
changes that mark this milestone in 
an institution's history. They have 
been challenging years — years that 
have been no strangers to financial 
crises, community campaigns, enor- 
mous growth, crushing defeat and 
tragedy. 

But they have been years that 
have brought dimension, wisdom, 
and maturity to Eastern Kentucky 
University . . . 

The threads of change began be- 
fore the Civil War, that most di- 
visive struggle in American history. 
Out of this strife and controversy, 
old Central University was born to 
the Presbyterian Church in the Con- 
federate States of America. 



As early as 1861 the General h 
sembly of the Presbyterian Chun 
had declared its support of the fe- 
eral government and establish! 
deep pro-Union ties. Dissent^ 
cried for a separation of church aiil 
state, but the trouble had alreay 
started and it continued as seced^ji 
states dissolved their connection 
with the Presbyterian Church in t 
United States of America. 

Troubles mounted as the Cenejl 
Assembly tried to discipline Sout- 
em sympathizers into admitting t: 
error in their political leanings. \. 
Richard A. Edwards, historian ail 
for many years director of Easterri 
Model Laboratory School, feels tK 
the four resolutions adopted by tl! 
General Assembly formed the brea- 
ing point when Southern Presbyt- 
rians finally began to realize th/ 
would have to reorganize and o-

'resbyterian Church's official school.

dmit it," Edwards maintains, "these 
3ur resolutions were the real cause

Following meetings in Louisville

on of Central University was or-

stablish Central University. The ac-

After a series of shifts in lead 
ship, Central University opened 
doors on September 22, 1874. R 
Robert Breck had finally agreed 
serve as Chancellor after the res 
nation of Rev. Stuart Robinson a 
after having served as recording s 
retary for the Board of Curators: 

The University opened withia 
College of Letters and Science.a 
College of Law, a Preparatory C- 
partment, and a College of Me - 
cine at Louisville. (Later a Colle 
of Dentistry at Louisville and tht» 
other preparatory schools at Jac 
son, Middlesboro, and Elizabe' 
town were opened.) 

Its Christian attitude was not or 
reflected in its motto "Lex Rex, Cr< 
Lux" (The Law is our Guide; t 
Cross is our Light), but also in 
trusting acceptance of any you 
man with or without the finances 
swing his education. The Board 
Curators minutes of April 30, 187 
"order that . . . any young men sat 
factorily endorsed as deserving aiil 
without means otherwise to pros|- 
cute their studies, be admitted upti 
their obligation to pay in the futut, 
if prospered, the amount of tuitict 
without interest." 

Under the leadership of Breck ar 
Rev. J. W. Pratt, president of tl 
faculties. Central continued to stre 
scholarship although money w 
not often the reward for a job w( 
done. Subscriptions from priva 
individuals had to be collected

way in which to continue the In-

to reduce the salaries of a portion 
of the faculty." 

Despite the financial crises and 
.academic problems with the advent 
pi the theory of evolution, the stu- 
.dents at Central apparently resem- 
,bled their modern counterparts. In 
1893 Central defeated Centre Col- 
lege for the state championship and 
all of Richmond rocked in victory. 
The Courier-Journal called it "the 
igreatest football game which ever

History hints that Central was 
doomed from the beginning and the 
Board of Curators minutes bear out 
that speculation. There were finan- 
cial depressions that may have led 
the curators to admit women in 
1893. However, the May 16, 1895, 



Board meetings sent out strong sig-

times. "After a careful survey of its

Subscriptions continued to dw 
die and finances sunk to even loJr 
depths, but the curators remain 
optimistic about Central and 
place in the education scheme 
things. On June 12, 1900, with t 
end only one year away, th/ 
passed a resolution to give "grea r 
prominence and more time . . 
the study of the English Bible in t 
curriculum . . ." 

When Centre College and Cent 
merged, the resulting institution t 
came Central University of Ke 
tucky. Many faculty from the Ric 
mond school went to Danville 
continue teaching. Some sevente 
years later. Centre College restor|l 
its original name. 

Central University was gone; 1^

Walters Collegiate Institute gave 
way to the movement in Kentucky 
toward state-supported education. 
Even in the early years of the 20th 
century, ranking Kentucky toward 
the bottom of education was fash- 
ionable. The teachers, in order 'o 
build interest state-wide in educa- 
tion, pointed out that Kentucky was 
painfully below her sister states. 

The Glasgow Times reported "We 
find that Kentucky is one of the two 
states of the Union that does not 
maintain a system of State Normal 
Schools . . . that there are only three 
states in the Union that show a 
greater percentage of ignorance 
among their white population . . ." 

Here, as in other instances, the 
press was utilized to help establish 
normal schools in Kentucky. 

The 1905 General Assembly re- 
sponded to the people's demands 
for improvement in the state's edu- 
cational system. Governor J. C. W. 
Beckham pointed out that it takes 
money to run educational institu- 
tions and cautioned the Assembly 
to proceed carefully. 

The legislature debated establish- 
ing three normal schools, two nor- 
mal schools, and decided that it 
could only finance one, and Bowling 
Green had the inside track on get- 
ting it. 

However, the people of Rich- 
mond and Madison County knew of 
the obvious benefits in having a 
normal school in their community. 
They also knew that they had a 
powerful drawing card in the cam- 
pus which had housed Central Uni- 
versity and which was at the time 
the home of Walters Collegiate In- 
stitute. 

Finally, the legislature was con- 
vinced that two schools were in 
order and Eastern became Normal 
School No. 1; Western became Nor- 
mal School No. 2. 

The law maintained that both 
schools were to train teachers for 
the classrooms around the Com- 
monwealth and it also established a 
Board of Regents to govern each. 
Each institution was also given $5,- 
000 to equip buildings, improve 
grounds etc., and each was to get 
$20,000 yearly for salaries and other 
expenses. 




Normal School students gathered in the ravine for bird study classes at 5 a.m. while 
modern counterparts do the same today for a different kind of "bird." 



According to Dorris' Five Decades 
of Progress, each county in a dis- 
trict was entitled to a free scholar- 
ship for "one white pupil for every 
five hundred and fraction thereof 
over two hundred and fifty, of white 
children" in the county. Students 
had to pledge themselves to the 
public schools for some two or three 
years (depending on the type of 
certificate they received), or pay 
their fees and tuition as the Regents 
prescribed. 

The first Regents were appointed 
May 9, 1906, and soon thereafter, 
they selected Ruric Nevel Roark as 
president; he had proposed a sys- 
tem of normal schools sometime 
earlier, but his plan had been turned 
down by the legislature. 

From the beginning. Eastern and 
Western competed with the State 
College (now the University of Ken- 
tucky) for funds and, no doubt, stu- 
dents. They finally met to talk over 
their differences and made plans to 
approach the 1908 legislature with 
some show of cooperation. As it 
turned out, the '08 legislature was 
more generous than the 1906 group. 
They appropriated 5200,000 for the 
State College and $150,000 for each 
normal school. 

The early years of the new normal 
school passed in the capable hands 
of Ruric Nevel Roark. He apparent- 
ly served in many capacities as the 
October 1907 issue of the Eastern 
Kentucky Review, the student news- 



paper, advertised for students a 
had them contact the president 
they happened to be interested. 

C. H. Gifford, '09, remembds 
Roark as one of the two most i 
fluential people in his life. "Desp 
the cold, poorly furnished and l 
decorated rooms and bare wa 
he said, "his mere presence brou^t 
warmth." 

The 1910 Bluemont records 
posthumous tribute to the fi 
president . . . "As a Kentuckian, I. 
Roark glorified in Kentucky as s 
has been, he grieved over Kentuc^ 
as she is, and he gave all the pow(5 
of his matured manhood to hep 
make Kentucky what she shall tj; 
and in doing so he laid down his II; 
in her service." 

The Review also outlined t|; 
courses of study available and gap 
instructions on the objectives f 
each. Six courses of study includl 
a Review Course to "satisfy t; 
needs of the public school teaches 
of Kentucky." Eastern also offer! 
a State Certificate course and a St£? 
Diploma Course, the latter bei 
"good for life in Kentucky." 

Three other courses were d 
signed for principals, superinten 
ents and librarians. 

Founders of Normal No. 1 show(i 
great foresight in their educatiorl 
objectives as reflected in their "et 
requirements." "The proper pla; 
at which to safeguard an institutiois

ciency is at the exit rather than at 
the entrance. Acting according to 
this proposition, the State Normals 
will place their courses of study 
within reach of any student who can 
profit by them, and in most cases 
the student will be permitted to 
show whether he can profit by 
them, by being given an opportun- 
ity to do the work rather than by 
being required to submit to an 'en- 
trance examination.' Students will 
find it easy to get in. 

"But every student must prove 
himself or herself to the full before 
being allowed to go out with the 
certificate which the law empowers 
the State Normals to confer. There 
must be evidence at the exit that 
the student has attained to the high 
standards of scholarship and teach- 
ing skill which have been set by the 
Normal Executive Council." 

At the first commencement exer- 
cises in 1909, Leslie Anderson offi- 
cially became the first graduate to 
receive a diploma from Eastern. 
Eleven members of that class took 
part in the first commencement ex- 
ercises ever held at Eastern. 

Later the same year, the class con- 
tinued to make history as they met 
"in the parlors of Memorial Hall

tion of Eastern Kentucky State Nor- 
mal School. Dudley Starns, class 
president called the meeting and he, 
along with Leslie Anderson, S. P. 
Chandler, H. L. Davis, O. B. Fallis, 
C. H. Gifford, Cam S. Holbrook, 
J. C. Jones, Elizabeth W. Morgan, Ha 
Pettus, and Cathryn V. Scott became 
charter members. 

The first officers of the Alumni As- 
sociation elected at that meeting 
were D. H. Starns, president, S. B. 
Chandler, vice-president, and Eliza- 
beth Morgan, secretary and treas- 
urer. 

The Bluemont, the first yearbook 
associated with the normal school, 
records the eccentricities of the stu- 
dents who compiled it, and though 
not one picture shows anyone in the 
institution smiling, they did not 
seem to lack for a sense of humor. 

The 1910 Bluemont, for example, 
writes a short sketch after each 
member of the faculty. For John A. 
Sharon, professor of American His- 
tory and civics, it says, "He is fat, 
rotund, and jolly, full of enthusiasm 
and Sociology." Of J. E. Gilkey, 
head of commercial branches the 
editors say, "Not an ordinary minis- 
ter, but an ordinary man. He never 



says a foolish thing nor ever does a 
wise one." 

Campus life featured the usual 
athletic teams: Base Ball, Foot Ball, 
and Basket Ball, along with the 
Tennis Club which had as many 
members as the three "major" 
sports put together! 

Georgetown College and the 
State University (LIK) took ads in the 
1910 yearbook while the State Bank 
and Trust Company boasted a sur- 
plus of $15,000 while asking normal 
students to deposit with them. 

The 20th century was a decade 
old and the long line of Eastern 
sons and daughters had already be- 
gun to form. 

But, times change and today East- 
ern's massive campus encompasses 
thousands of acres in sharp contrast 
to the thirty or so in the earlier cam- 
puses. From eleven 1909 graduates 
to more than 2,000 in 1973 ... the 
statistics are staggering.

A GIANT STEP 



Alumni Comniissioii Americans Foremost Sculptor 
To Create Centennial Year Gift To EKU 



By DOUG WHITLOCK 
Director of Public Information 



When Daniel Boone first set foot 
in Kentucky and when Neil Arm- 
strong first stepped from his Eagle 
space craft onto the surface of the 
moon, both were pioneers. And, 
those two epochal feats will soon 
both be memorialized on the East- 
ern Kentucky University campus. 

Sculptor Felix W. de Weldon, 
creator of the famous statue of the 
Iwo jima flag raising at the Marine 
Corps War Memorial and numerous 
other world-famous monuments, 
has been commissioned by the EKU 
Alumni Association to make a statue 
that will help commemorate East- 
ern's observance this year of a cen- 
tury of higher education on its 
campus. 

The EKU alumni have commis- 
sioned de Weldon, who also created 
the French Belleau Wood Monu- 
ment, the statute of Simon Bolivar 
in Washington and the busts of 28 
American presidents, to design a 
statute that would represent man's 
greatest accomplishment of the last 
100 years. 

Subject of the statue will be the 
space accomplishments of the 
United States. Its base will bear 
two inscriptions, Neil Armstrong's 
first words on the surface of the 
moon, and another designating the 
statue as a centennial year gift to 
the University. It will join the exist- 
ing statue of Daniel Boone, which 




J. W. "Spider" Thurman and Felix deWeldon stand on the Coates Building steps 
during the sculptor's fall visit to examine the site of his sculpture for the EKU 
campus. :

stands in front of the Keen Johnson 
Building, as a salute to America's pi- 
oneer spirit. 

' The Association has announci'cl 
lh(" initiation of a $60,000 tund drive 
to finance the statue, which will be 
located on the Park Drive side of 
the Powell Building. The statue will 
complete Eastern's University Cen- 
ter which consists of the Powell 
Building, the Keen Johnson Building, 
the Chapel of Meditation and the 
Park Fountain in the plaza. 

Funds to finance the project will 
come from contributions to the 
Alumni Century Fund — the same 
fund that financed the construction 
of the non-denominational Chapel 
of Meditation. Contributors of $500 
or more will be designated as mem- 
bers of the "Centennial Club." 

Two other ways in which individ- 
uals can contribute to the fund drive 
to build the statue are through the 
"Men and Women of Eastern" pro- 
gram which entails an annual gift 
of $100 or more, or the "Centennial 
Honor Roll" which requires smaller 
contributions from five dollars up. 

Full "Centennial Club" member- 
ship, said J. W. "Spider" Thurman, 
director of Alumni Affairs, may be 
paid in annual installments of $100 
or more per year if the donor so 
elects. 

Contributors of $500 or more to 
the fund drive, in addition to being 
designated "Centennial Club" mem- 
bers, will receive a bronze medal- 
lion commemorating EKU's observ- 
ance of the century that has passed 
since higher education began on the 
campus in 1874. In addition, their 
names will appear on a plaque to 
be located near the statue and in 
various publications. 

The two-sided medallion, on one 
of its faces, features busts of Robert 
Breck, the first chancellor of Central 
University, Eastern's campus prede- 



cessor, and Ruric Nevel Roark, first 
president of Eastern who served 
from 1906 to 1909. 

On the reverse side of the medal- 
lion appears a composite of three 
buildings chosen for their signif- 
icance in Eastern's development. 

President Robert R. Martin, reg- 
istering approval of the Alumni As- 
sociation project, said the new 
sculpture would join the Univer- 
sity's existing statue of Daniel Boone 
in "symbolizing the pioneer vision, 
courage and determination that 
characterize both frontier and 
space-age America." 



Lee Thomas Mills, Lexingti 
president of the Alumni Associatit 
said that the statue will have cc 
siderable educational value. P\^ 
are to have information about t 
statue and the United State's spa 
exploration program available in 
area of the Powell Building, in fro 
of which the statue will stand. 

Dr. Martin also expressed \ 
pleasure that a sculptor of deWel 
on's stature was commissioned 
execute the new campus statue. 

The artist is one of the world 
most highly regarded sculptors ar 
has been called by various mai

is one of many statues by deWeldon in the Washington, O. C, area.

(vacations I went to Greece to learn 
of its magnificent architecture and 
the perfection of ancient Creek 



sculpture. During four winters I 
traveled to Egypt to study the mon- 
uments and stone carvings. It is 
here I learned how to simplify the 
form and by its simplicity give it 
greater force. By that time I had 
decided that one life-time is not 
enough to experiment in art so I 
planned to build my career from 
what I had learned from the old 
masters. To me the traditional form 
of art speaks directly to the human 
spirit and is eternal. 

"In 1933 I went to England where 
I studied archeology and anatomy 
at Oxford, though later I found that 
by doing portraits of famous people, 
one hour with one great man taught 
me more in psychology than the 
two years at the university. A most 
valued lesson learned from my fa- 
ther was that one should put stress 
on spiritual values rather than mate- 
rial riches; that wealth of the soul is 
how much it feels and its poverty is 
in how little it feels." 




He established a successful career 
in Europe before coming to the 
United States. In England kings, 
prime ministers and politicians 
posed for him. Since coming to this 
country, his interest in history and 
those who make history has con- 
tinually been reflected in his crea- 
tiveness. As a tribute to his artistic 
accomplishments, deWeldon was 
appointed to the National Commis- 
sion of Fine Arts by two presidents. 

Centennial year plans also in- 
clude the Century Fund's first pro- 
ject — the Chapel of Meditation. 
The Alumni Association will transfer 
the deed to the chapel site, now 
held in trust by a local bank with 
the completed $376,000 chapel 
back to Eastern during this academic 
year.

The Campus 



Enrollment: 
Still Going Up 

Nearly 15,000 students are re- 
ceiving instruction from Eastern dur- 
ing the fall semester. 

EKU president, Dr. Robert R. Mar- 
tin, said that the campus enrollment 
of 11,088 students represents a 4.8 
per cent increase over last fall's 
previous record enrollment of 10,- 
580. 

In addition to the campus count, 
there are some 3,000 students 
served through various extended 
campus programs and there are 
more than 700 students enrolled at 
the University's Model Laboratory 
School this fall. 

The Eastern enrollment contrasts 
with an average enrollment de- 
crease of 5 per cent projected for 
the 300-member institutions of the 
American Association of State Col- 
leges and Universities. 

The EKU enrollment increase is 
further dramatized by the fact that 
the University graduated the largest 
number in its history last year. A 
total of 2,596 students received de- 
grees at Eastern's spring and sum- 
mer commencement exercises. 

The campus enrollment break- 
down shows 3,725 freshmen, 2,123 
sophomores, 1,763 juniors, 1,815 
seniors and 1,662 graduate students. 

Figures also show that EKU has 
enrolled 5,625 male students com- 
pared to 5,463 women for the cur- 
rent semester. 

On-campus enrollment totals in- 
clude 1,329 students from Madison 
County, 1,145 from Jefferson and 
937 from Fayette. 

Other leading counties include 
Kenton, 263; Boyle, 226; Clark 211; 
Franklin, 202. 

Others with 100 or more students 
are Pike, 193; Laurel, 185; Camp- 
bell, 182; Bell, 144; Pulaski, 156; 
Estill, 152; Perry and Floyd, 127

ROTC Enrollment: 
Marching Upward 

Enrollment in ROTC at Eastern 
jumped this fall by more than 12 per 
cent over last fall's total, according 
to Colonel Woifred K. White, pro- 
fessor of military science. 

Students in ROTC classes at East- 
ern total 555 this fall, compared 
with 493 last year, he said. "The 
number of women more than 
trebled — 78 this fall, compared 
with 23 last year." 

Noting the increased interest in 
ROTC, Colonel White said even 
more students might have enrolled 
had it not been for a misconception 
by some students that entering the 
basic course incurs a later military 
obligation. 

"No obligation for later military 
service is incurred until a student 
applies for the advanced course, is 
accepted, and signs a contract, or 
accepts an Army scholarship," Col- 
onel White said. 



There is a way for those wp 
missed out on the basic RO 
course when they entered the ui 
versify to join the numbers enroll«l 
in the study. Colonel White saj. 
"The key is a basic camp held di- 
ing the summer at Fort Knox. Tlh 
six-week basic camp replaces t;; 
first two years of ROTC training."! 

Colonel White said, "It appei<i 
that one-third of those now takiii; 
advanced ROTC will be commi- 
sioned in the Military Police Cord 
under a new program established ; 
Eastern last year." This prograji 
complements Eastern's School i 
Law Enforcement and its classes ai 
attended by a number of law e 
forcement majors. 

The MP program at Eastern is ot 
of only two such programs in U. 
universities. Eastern's ROTC pn 
gram for women, also establish^ 
last year, was one of the first 10 
the nation. 

He attributed the increased ROT 
enrollment to discussions last sun 
mer by cadets from Eastern wi 
prospective students in their horr

ounties. Also, a better description 
)f ROTC benefits to groups of stu- 
lents taking advantage of summer 
ire-registration at Eastern resulted 
n a greater number enrolling in 
[OJC classes, Colonel White said. 

Opportunities for high school 
eniors, both men and women, in 
he Kentucky area to win four-year 
vrmy ROTC college scholarships at 
nore than 280 colleges and univer- 
ities have been announced by Col- 
inel Wolfred K. White, professor of 
nilitary science at Eastern. 

lOTC Scholarships: 
Available To All 

More than 1,000 Army ROTC 
cholarships will be awarded this 
ear. In addition to providing full 
uition and funds for textbooks and 
aboratory fees, the Army ROTC 
cholarships pay a monthly subsist- 
nce allowance of $100. 

Upon graduation from college, 
he ROTC scholarship winner is 
ommissioned a second lieutenant 
T the U.S. Army and is expected to 
erve on active duty for four years. 

"The scholarship student is not 
inly receiving a free education but 
le is also enhancing his future by 
indertaking ROTC leadership in- 
truction. This is something that is 
1 demand by both military and 
ivilian enterprise," Colonel White 
aid. 

Winners of Army ROTC scholar- 
hips can use the awards at any 
chool of their choice offering the 
3ur-year Army ROTC program, pro- 
ided they are accepted by that 
chool. 

1144,459 Grant: 
For Education Project 

Eastern, the Fayette County 
chools and the Central Kentucky 
'ocational Region have received a 
144,459 grant from the U.S. Office 
»f Education to begin conducting a 
hree-year cooperative career edu- 
ation project. 

The purpose of the project is to 
hange educational programs at all 
evels on the Fayette County region 
o that students will be able to "ad- 
ust to and participate in the world 
)f work," Dr. William E. Sexton, 



dean of Eastern's College of Applied 
Arts and Technology, said. 

Dr. John D. Jenkins, director of 
EKU's Pikeville Exemplary Project, 
will also direct the career education 
project. 

The project proposal pointed out 
that the changes in the educational 
program will permit students leav- 
ing elementary school "to better 
understand themselves and career 
opportunities, including working 
conditions and occupational per- 
formance requirements. 

"Experiences gained in junior 
high school will assist students in 
making tentative career decisions," 
the proposal said. It added that 
"secondary program changes will 
provide opportunities for students 
to prepare for a variety of occupa- 
tional goals . . ." 

Accelerated Programs: 
For Motivated High 
Schoolers 

Motivated high school students 
may earn college credit while still 
in high school through any of five 
accelerated programs offered by 
Eastern. 

EKU vice president for academic 
affairs, Dr. John D. Rowlett, said, 
"This is a worthwhile program for a 
number of reasons. It offers the 
motivated high school student an 
opportunity for an academic chal- 
lenge and makes it possible for the 
student to shorten the amount of 
time required to earn the baccalau- 
reate degree." Fie added that it also 
should be an aid in the adjustment 
from high school to college. 

EKU president. Dr. Robert R. Mar- 
tin, points to the accelerated pro- 
grams as another of Eastern's de- 
partures from the traditional think- 
ing that it takes four years to get a 
baccalaureate degree. 

Eastern's academic schedule, 
which consists of two regular se- 
mesters, four and eight-week sum- 
mer sessions and a two-week inter- 
session, keeps the University open 
12 months of the year and makes it 
possible to earn a degree in three 
years. 

In short. Dr. Martin said, "this is 
another way in which the university 
is serving the needs of the region." 



The Milestone: 

Another Ail-American 

The 1973 volume of Eastern's 
student yearbook, the Milestone, 
has been awarded an All-American 
honor rating, the highest given by 
the Associated Collegiate Press. 

The 608-page Milestone was the 
50th edition of the EKU student 
yearbook, and the editors were 
praised for taking advantage of the 
special anniversary. The 1974 Mile- 
stone is also planned as an anniver- 
sary book, and will commemorate 
the observance of a century of high- 
er education EKU is holding this 
year. 

Judge Ben Allnutt, director of the 
ACP's critical service, wrote in eval- 
uating the Milestone, "The '73 Mile- 
stone is an exceptionally fine year- 
book — it reports the essential de- 
tails of the year in picture and word 
in a very interesting way. 

"The reader gets a very complete 
idea of what life was like on the 
Eastern campus this year. The year- 
book is a splendid recognition of 
the 50th anniversary. 

"The editorial content of the 
book reports completely and inter- 
estingly the essential story of the 
year with accuracy and appropriate 
detail." 

Editor of the 1973 Milestone was 
William C. Sawyer and managing 
editor was Miss Linda Mittell, both 
of Louisville. Business manager of 
the book was Rick Allen, Fern 
Creek. All three were seniors. 

Scoop Jackson: 

Lecturing On Campus 

"The biggest issue facing America 
today is our economy," says U.S. 
Senator hienry M. (Scoop) Jackson, 
Washington Democrat, speaking at 
Eastern as this year's Carvice Kincaid 
Lecturer. Jackson said this issue in- 
cludes "the challenge of our energy 
requirements." 

He said America has the talent "to 
provide economic growth without 
the inflation we are now having . . . 
We can have both economic growth 
and environmental quality." 

Jackson said he has introduced 
measures in the U.S. Senate calling 
for conversion of coal and conserva- 
tion of energy sources to combat 



VINTER, 1974

the energy crisis, which also call for 
reclamation of stripped land. He 
said the measures will defeat "the 
Arab blackmail" of America through 
threats to cut off oil supplies. 

PE Curriculum: 

Offering Athletic Training 

This fall Eastern became the first 
institution in the state to offer a de- 
gree in physical education with an 
emphasis in athletic training. 

In becoming only the 30th school 
in the nation to offer such a pro- 
gram, Eastern will prepare students 
to become certified trainers. After 
completing requirements for the 
curriculum, the student must then 
take a national test for full certifi- 
cation. 

Eastern athletic trainer Ken Murray 
noted that EKU will be one of only 
five or six schools in the country to 
offer this type program on an un- 
dergraduate level to both men and 
women students. 

"We feel that athletic training is 
really an up-and-coming field all 
over the nation," Murray said. "Be- 
fore too much longer, each high 
school will probably have an athlet- 
ic trainer." 

For Home Ec: 

A New Fashion Major 

A new study major in fashion is 
being initiated this semester at 
Eastern. 

The new baccalaureate program is 
administered by the Department of 
Home Economics. Dr. Roberta Hill, 
department chairman, said, "Stu- 
dent interest is good in this new 
curriculum." 

She said boys as well as girls are 
urged to inquire about this major. It 
offers careers in clothing design, 
merchandising, and communication 
and coordination of fashions. 

In its proposal for the new major, 
which was approved by the EKU 
Board of Regents, the Home Eco- 
nomics Department pointed out 
that employers are seeking appli- 
cants with degrees in fashion. 



ALUMNI WEEKEND 
MAY 10-11 



Burke Ruth (Old '72): 
A Cow Kicks The Bucket 

Every Eastern agriculture student 
who worked on the dairy farm fond- 
ly and lovingly remembers "Old 
72." Even as a heifer she was known 
as "72", which means that she was 
the second heifer calf born in 1957. 
Only a few will remember her as 
Eastern Burke Ruth, registry number 
4501857. But all will remember her 
as "the milkingest cow" they ever 
worked with. 

She was a very gentle animal, 
never a bossy cow and one who 
preferred to be left alone. Being a 
fine boned animal, she appeared 
fragile which often concerned the 
dairy students, and because of her 
extreme femininity she enjoyed spe- 
cial and considerate treatment. 

No dairy cow in the EKU herd in 
the last 50 years has ever rivaled her 
milk production record. In fact, her 
lifetime production of 198,218 
pounds of milk has been bettered 
by few cows in the Holstein world 
of cattle. She would score in the 
99.8 percentile if compared to all 
other Holstein dairy cows. 

It is difficult to imagine that a 
cow in her lifetime could produce 
better than 92,000 quarts of milk. 
This is the equivalent of supplying 
a school with 1,000 school children 
one pint of milk a day for an entire 
school year. 

"Old 72" simply died in her 
sleep. Joe Koger, EKU Stateland 
Farm Manager and her greatest ad- 
mirer, explained, "She had been 86 
days into her present lactation." 

PE Programs: 

Cited By Newsletter 

The health and physical educa- 
tion program at Eastern, where stu- 
dents last spring voted 2 to 1 in a 
special referendum election in sup- 
port of required courses, was cited 
in the July Newsletter of the Presi- 
dent's Council on Physical Fitness 
and Sports. 

The Newsletter, summarizing an 
article by Dr. Fred Darling, chairman 
of the Department of Men's Physi- 
cal Education at EKU, said University 
president. Dr. Robert R. Martin, and 
the Board of Regents "were singled 



out by the school's leadership 
playing a significant part in the si 
dents' vote of confidence in physic I 
education. 

The Newsletter quoted from [ 
Darling's article: 

"Eastern's administration and tl 
Board of Regents have had foresig 
and imagination in their plannii 
for the needs of our studen 
Where many universities have ove 
looked the need for the health, re 
reation and physical developme 
of students. Eastern has recognizf 
this need and, more importanti 
has developed programs, facilitii 
and outdoor recreation areas 
keep pace with expanding enrol 
ment." 

Mass Transportation: 
A New Course Of Study 

Future mass transportation, resul 
ing from present national transpo 
tation and energy problems, is tF 
subject of a new course of study . 
Eastern. 

An EKU mathematics professo 
Dr. Francesco G. Scorsone, who hi 
helped the United States and Ita 
in designing guided air cushio 
vehicles, will be the coordinator c 
the interdisciplinary course to b 
offered next semester. 

The dean of Eastern's College c 
Arts and Sciences, Dr. Frederic C 
Ogden, said "The whole idea be 
hind this course is that it's going t 
be an attempt to examine what el 
fects changes in the transportatio' 
systems would have in terms c 
mass transportation." 

Students in the course will stud 
the problems of today's limite( 
transportation and possible futur 
solutions. In addition to instructor 
in technical fields, faculty from thi 
sociology, political science, am 
psychology departments will offe 
explanations of how future transi 
systems will affect Americans. 

Dr. Scorsone, who proposed th« 
course, worked with engineers anc 
mathematicians in Italy and Pueblo 
Colorado, this past summer in test 
ing an air-cushion vehicle. He saic 
1980 is the target year for intro 
ducing such trains into the transi 
system, and "they will be in wide 
spread use in 30 or 40 years."

For Spanish Students: 
A Summer In Mexico 

A group of 17 Eastern students 
have returned from a four-week 
travel-study program in Mexico, 
sponsored by the EKU Department 
of Foreign Languages. 

The group travelled and studied 
under the direction of William 
Clarkson, assistant professor of

side excursions to Cuernavaca, 
Taxco, Toluca, Acupuico, Pueblo 
and Tampico. They were assigned 
individual tasks of an academic na- 
ture while in Mexico City for which 
they received three hours credit 
toward graduation. 

Attendance at stage shows, 
movies, and the internationally fa- 
mous Ballet Folklorico was manda-

viewed the volcanoes PopocateptI 
and Ixtaccihuatl. 



Upward Bound: 
Bridging The Gap 

A group of 100 high school soph- 
omores, juniors, and seniors from 
14 central and southeastern Ken- 
tucky counties attended last sum- 
mer's Upward Bound program at 
Eastern. 

The federal program emphasizes 
the academic, cultural and personal 
enrichment of the students, accord- 
ing to Louis A. Power, EKU Upward 
Bound director. 

The seniors took college courses 
as a "bridge between high school 
and college," Power said. The others 
took high school courses, with the 
juniors also taking college English. 
The eight-weeks' program, in its 
eighth summer at Eastern, lasted 
from June 11 to August 3. 

Upward Bound students are se- 
lected by their high school faculties 
and administrators. The program is 
designed to help disadvantaged 
youth achieve a college education. 
Upward Bound students stay on the 
EKU campus three summers and 
then may be eligible to enroll at the 
University under various student-aid 
programs. 

Upward Bound studies include 
English, Spanish, chemistry, physics, 
algebra, geometry, geography, 
American government, economics, 
social science, business, and home 
mechanics, along with such special 
interest courses as arts and crafts, 
industrial arts, creative writing, 
journalism, recreation and driver 
education. 

Special programs on driving safe- 
ly, water safety, drug abuse, and 
venereal disease control were of- 
fered by the EKU faculty and staff. 

A parent advisory board for fed- 
eral Upward Bound and Special 
Services programs at Eastern was 
also appointed, according to Power.

The record shows that these ad- 
lonitions are in order and that Mrs. 
haffin is, indeed, worthy of the 
lany honors that she's collected 
ver the years. 

Mrs. Chaffin has spent her life 
ursuing her education and writing, 
er two loves. Born in Eastern i<en- 
icky, she still lives at Meta and 

rites about the land she loves. 

She has published some 500 sho;-' 
lOries, 14 books, including her 
Jtobiography, and spent many 
ours pursuing degrees at Pikeville 
jollege and Eastern. 

"I am stubborn as a mule, and 



when I take a notion to do some- 
thing, I do it," she said in a Courier- 
Journal story last year. And, with 
that kind of perseverance, she man- 
aged to forge her way through 
school, graduating from Johns Creek 
in 1947 after dropping out some 
time before. 

She sold her first story in 1952 
and since that time, she's written 
with enthusiasm and her writing has 
received wide acceptance. She's 
won numerous awards including a 
Writers Digest prize for her short 
story, "In the Shower" and the 1971 
Children's Book Award given by the 
Child Study Association for her 12th 
novel, John Henry McCoy. 

During her educational pursuits, 
Mrs. Chaffin worked full-time, first 
as a classroom teacher, and then as 
a librarian. "I was at a on^-room 
school at Dix Fork," she remembers, 
"I taught all grades, with 58 stu- 
dents. When I hear these people 
complain now that they've got 25 
kids, 75 machines and aides, and 
that they can't teach, well, it's just 
not so." 



As wife, mother, author, student, 
and teacher, Mrs. Chaffin has found 
that time is of the essence. At one 
point, she made the six-hour trip to 
Eastern once a week for one class, 
but felt that the time was well spent. 
"I feel sinful," she says, "if days go 
by and I'm sewing on buttons or 
making fudge. They're so perish- 
able." 

Mrs. Chaffin also feels an obliga- 
tion to Eastern Kentucky and the re- 
gion and people she loves. "I'm not 
trying to preach or be a sociologist 
or psychologist, but I am trying to 
tell the world truthfully how we are. 
We've been belittled and misunder- 
stood for too long." 

Mrs. Lillie Chaffin continues to 
be the whirlwind of Meta and hopes 
to perhaps pursue a doctorate or 
another degree sometime in the fu- 
ture. Observes her husband Tom, 
"I believe she'd still go to school if 
she were 100 if she thought she 
could learn more!" 

The fan club was right; Mrs. Lillie 
Chaffin is worthy of an Alumnus 
salute. Maybe it will be the begin- 
ning of many more.

Dorris Museum Salutes History 



13Y RON WOLFE 
Assistant Director Alumni Affairs 

I N A YEAR when history steps into 
* the limelight at Eastern, it is only 
fitting that the Jonathan Truman 
Dorris Museum, help recall those 
days when the commonwealth 
struggled to educate her youth, in- 
deed to survive. 

The building boom which has 
marked the campus during the past 
decade even found its way to the 
fourth floor of the Crabbe Library 
where the museum is housed. 

There in one corner of the muse- 
um is an authentic log cabin, built 
by the curator, MISS JANE MUN- 
SON, '67, who found the cabin in 
the wilds on the Jackson, Rockcastle 
county line. 

"We wanted to display some of 
our historical artifacts in their na- 
tural setting," said Miss Munson, "so 
we got the cabin." 

The whole process took several 
weeks, but Miss Munson, with the 
help of student workers, finally 
finished the job this past summer. 

"We started by reconstructing it 
on a maintenance lot here on the 
campus," she said, "we had to make 
several changes since the cabin had 
two stories. 

IN MEMORIAM 

COL. CLAYTON D. CRAFT, '50, on 
September 27, 1973, when Texas Inter- 
national's flight from El Dorado, Arkan- 
sas to Texarkana, Texas crashed near 
Mena, Arkansas. A 24-year veteran of 
military service, Colonel Craft had 
served in the Marine Corps during 
World War II, in Korea, Japan, Ger- 
many, Hawaii, and Iran. At the time of 
his death, he was the director of main- 
tenance at Red River Army Depot in 
Texarkana, Texas. 

JAMES H. ALLEN, '53, assistant 
treasurer of Interstate Life and Accident 
Insurance Company and assistant of the 
Board of Directors of the Real Estate 
Division Corporation on June 10, 1973, 
while vacationing in Brooklyn, New 
York. He had joined Interstate Life in 
1953 and would have celebrated his 
20th year of service later this year. 



"We built it on the lot, re- 
some of the logs, and then move |il 
to the library. We have a corn 
stone with the usual memorab 
and we colored the plaster betwt 
the logs with orange pekoe tea 
make it look authentic." 

The cabin is furnished with a sp 
ning wheel, cord bed, and kitci" 
ware from the mid 1800's. 

The museum itself has expanc 
out of the original room into k 
hallway and into the bookstacks r 
study carrels on the fourth floor 
the library. 

"We've kept the main room i 
Kentucky history," said Miss Mi 
son, who explained the collectic 
from various countries which hcfc

"In 1926 when Dr. Dorris start 
the museum," she said, "he ens 
ioned a world museum and ask 
students and friends who w( 
travelling around the world to se 
him items for the museum." 

As it turned out, his requ 
brought some results as displ,

THE EASTERN KENTUCKY UNIVERSITY ALUMNIi 



primarily a Kentucky Collection 
turing the state and the people 

have lived there. 

\ 1967 Eastern graduate who also 
Ids an M.A. in history from the 
iversity of Miami in Florida, Miss 
inson hopes the museum will be 
jful and educational. "We hope 
becomes a learning resource on 
! campus," she said, "after all, we 
ow that we learn from the past 
help us through the future." 
Slowly, as more people learn of 
; museum, traffic increases and 
;re are more requests to use var- 
is items. 

rhis past summer saw the heav- 
t traffic through the cases as near- 
250 people per week stopped in 
see what was going on with the 
Din construction. The 1972-73 
ar saw some 4,272 use the muse- 

1 from June through June. 

"All kinds of groups use the mu- 
jm," said Miss Munson. "A his- 
■y of education class came over 
see our books. We have a good 
llection of old school books, 
^nd, I even showed a kindergarten 
iss at Model how to make corn 
ead the hard way! I took a mano 
d metate and corn over there and 
: them see how difficult it was to 
ind corn. 

"We are interested in aiding the 
lucational system in any way. We 
icourage teachers to bring classes 
the museum where we will show 
e process of changing wool or flax 
to thread and cloth, demonstrate 
e workings of a muzzle loading 
in — including the bullet making, 
id talk in general about the lives 
ir ancestors and their Indian 
lunterparts lived." 
Miss Munson admits that the mu- 
um is dependent upon the public 
r its livelihood. "We depend up- 
1 donations," she said, "and we're 
ways in the market for historical 
tifacts. We hope, that as the mu- 
um grows and more alumni know 
)out it, they'll remember us when 
ey find items of historical signi- 
:ance which woulci benefit a 
useum like ours." 
To date, the museum has more 
an 3,000 items in the main col- 
ction, including some 700 in the 
arion David Kunkel Collection, an

Library on the campus. 



extensive group of items which in- 
cludes scores of farm tools, carpen- 
ters tools, kitchen aids, and various 
other artifacts. Kunkel was a local 
filling station owner who collected 
historical artifacts. They came to the 
university when he died. 

"We hope to eventually place 
more of our artifacts in their natural 
setting," said Miss Munson, "the 
way the construction of the cabin 
has allowed us to do. We want to 
build scenes for many of our relics 
and generally make the museum 
more appealing." 

Most of the artifacts are donated; 
some are on loan to the museum. 
"We get donations from all kinds of 
sources," said Miss Munson. "When 
our cabin project was reported in 
the Kentucky Post in northern Ken- 
tucky, the writer quoted me as say- 
ing that 'all we really need now is a 
cord bed.' About a month later, a 
Post reader, Mrs. John Sears of Edge- 
wood, called the newspaper and 
gave us a cord bed and a picture of 
her grandfather who had made it." 

Besides Miss Munson and various 
student workers, the museum is 
staffed by Dr. Samuel Walker who 
has been working amid the arti- 
facts for some seven years. 

Dr. Walker who says he's "been 
in the school business for 70 years" 
spends each afternoon greeting visi- 



tors and seeing that the displays are 
in order. 

"I couldn't get along without Dr. 
Walker," Miss Munson maintains, 
"he greets visitors, cleans cases, and 
he is always here. That leaves me 
free to work on projects, attend 
conferences, run down historical 
artifacts, and do many things that I 
couldn't ordinarily do." 

Miss Munson and Dr. Walker are 
quick to point out the various items 
in the main room of the museum 
and explain how the relics relate to 
Kentucky's history and to Eastern 
and her forerunner institutions. 

War relics are very popular with 
such displays as an authentic muster 
roll from Union Headquarters, an 
1863 Soldiers Hymn Book, a bass 
drum from the War of 1812, and a 
Revolutionary War uniform. 

Richmond is prominent in various 
displays, including actual records of 
the Richmond Library from 1841- 
1850, and a poster which advertises 
"M. D. Halls 'Cheap Store' furnished 
with goods from Eastern Cities." 

A section from the Student Hand- 
book of old Central University 
makes for a sharp contrast to the 
1973 version of Eastern's counter- 
part. The opening of the 1896-97 
publication maintains that "our first 
object is to win to Jesus Christ these 
college men who are to fill these 



'INTER, 1974 



35 



places of trust . . . we must endeavor 
to guard our students from tempta- 
tion and shield them from sin . . ." 

And a copy of Stephen Darden 
Parish's 1875-76 diary proves that 
campus disturbances are not unique 
to modern America. "The Prepara- 
tory body were assembled in the as- 
sembly room, with the college today 
at 10 and treated to a very severe 
lecture by Drs. Pratt and Breck, and 
Prof. Barbour for misdemeanors 
committed at the Female Institute 
last night. The boys students sere- 
naded Prof. Richardson last night as 
he had just returned from the east 
with a new wife {second one). After 
that, at a late of night, they entered 
the grounds of the Institute and I 
suppose acted little better than a 
band of Apache Indians; they were 
given the hour to draw up resolu- 
tions, redressing their wrongs and 
pledging themselves not to be guilty 
of such proceedings again." 

Another display of interest to 
Eastern graduates is the Gibson Col- 
lection of Medical Tools which 
came to the museum from the old 
Gibson Hospital in Richmond. Me- 
anderers can wince at the stomach 
pump, tonsil snare and wire, and 
other crude medical paraphernalia. 

Other displays include famous 
Kentuckians like Abraham Lincoln, 
Jefferson Davis, Henry Clay, and 
Cassius Clay. 

Visitors may see lemon squeezers, 
flat irons, corn shellers, cherry 
stoners, sausage stuffers, a Blickens- 
derfer typewriter, a Wilcox and 
Gibbs 1857 sewing machine and 
hundreds of other historical items 
which have been important in Ken- 
tucky's development. 

"We're growing," said Miss Mun- 
son, "and we will continue to as 
long as people know we're here and 
they care about what we have to 
offer." 

For the appreciative visitor, The 
Dorris Museum is a growing link 
with the past; a light for the future, 
and most certainly an important re- 
minder of the many conveniences 
that we enjoy in the 20th century. 

In any case, it's a great diversion 
for anyone who realizes history's 
role in the future. 



Alumni Report 



li 



By J. W. THURMAN 
Director of Alumni Affairs 

Centennial Homecoming '73, 
using the theme, "A Century of 
Memories", was celebrated by many 
returning alumni. The 1963 and 
1968 classes celebrated their five 
and ten year reunions and the 
cheerleaders from 1960-72 also held 
a homecoming reunion, jerry Stew- 
art, '68, class president, presided 
over his class' luncheon, while John 
Vetter, '63, class president, directed 
his class' get-together. The cheer- 
leader reunion was coordinated by 
Rita Lawrence Cunningham, '69, 
chairman; Larry Rees, '66, Anne 
Dean Gausepohl, '63, and Carol 
Hulette Stump, '64. 

The first Homecoming Golf 
Tournament was held on Saturday 
morning. Eleven men and one 
woman entered . . . the winner . . . 
you guessed it . . . Donna L. Hol- 
land, '72, of Campbellsville. The 
tournament was held on EKU's 
beautiful Arlington course with Del 
Hamner, the golf pro, directing. The 
tournament is to become an annual 
affair. 

The Homecoming Parade with 
fifty-three units added to the theme 
with its cleverly designed floats. The 
Baptist Student Union was the win- 
ner of the most beautiful float while 
the Industrial Education Club's float 
was judged the most original. Sid- 
ney Clay Hall won the trophy for the 
best decorated building. 

The Homecoming Week-end be- 
gan Friday afternoon with a pep 
rally, followed by a dance in the 
Keen Johnson Building Ballroom. 
The Saturday night entertainment, 
"The Golden Age of Rock", featured 
five groups from the Rock 'n Roll 
era, including Danny and the Jun- 
iors, The Five Satins, and The 
Dovells. 

Last of all, there was the game, a 
35-0 shellacking at the hands of 
Western. The young, inexperienced 



Colonels grew up a bit this her - 
coming and perhaps they can \i 
for the homecomers next year. 

The present Alumni Execut? 
Council is no doubt the most act;e 
and energetic council we have f'i 
in some time. Even before all 
Century Club pledges were ci 
pleted the group recognized 
need for further participation / 
alumni, especially in this Cent( - 
nial Year on campus. The group l;s 
instigated another capital gifts ca - 
paign to present EKU with a memij- 
ial gift in its celebration of 100 yejs 
of higher education on the camp. 
Plans call for the presentation of t? 
memorial on May 11, Alumni C 
this year. 

Many have already received a I 
ter and pledge card from Tom Mi 
alumni president explaining t 
Centennial project. The Council 
encouraging participation especia 
during this historical occasion 
alumni and friends again make 
significant contribution to Easterr 

The previous project. The Chaf 
of Meditation, has been a valual 
and useful asset to the campus coi 
munity. Contributors are urged 
visit the campus and see the fru 
of their giving as the chapel me( 
the various spiritual needs of t 
campus community. 

Hopefully, the Centennial gift, 
statue of the figure on the astr 
nauts medal, will be as significant 
the chapel as it symbolizes the h 
torical movement from Dan 
Boone to the Space Age. 



May 11, 1974, will be Alumni D 
on Eastern's campus. It will also I 
the date for the reunion of the 191 
1924, 1934, 1949, and 1959 classt 
Class members should have r 
ceived their first letter by this tin 
notifying them of their reuni( 
dates. Remember, this is graduatic 
weekend and this year, the affa 
will take on added significance

THE EASTERN KENTUCKY UNIVERSITY ALUMNL 



Announcing The 

CENTENNIAL CLUB 

of the 

Eastern Kentucky University 
Alumni Century Fund 





The Centennial Chili 

Your invitation to the Eastern Kentucky University 
Centennial Club provides the opportunity to join other 
lumni and friends of the University in making a lasting 
nd meaningful contribution to Eastern during the 
'')bservance of the Centennial Year of Higher Education 
in the EKU campus. 

The Centennial Club is a project of the Alumni As- 
ociation of Eastern Kentucky University and conducted 
'hrough the structure of the Alumni Century Fund which 
uccessfully financed the drive to build the non-denom- 
national Chapel of Meditation, a structure that has be- 
ome a campus landmark during its short history of 
er\ ice to the University Community. 



The Sculptor 



Perhaps Dr. Felix de Weldon's best introduction is a 
partial listing of the noted works he has created. It soon 
becomes obvious why this man, whom many consider 
the finest sculptor of this century, has been called 
"Sculptor for the Ages." Included among his triumphs 
are the Marine Corps War Memorial, with its famous 
statue of the Iwo Jima flag raising, the statue of Simon 
Bolivar, both in Washington, D.C., the French Belleau 
Wood Monument, the National Monument for Malaysia 
at Kuala Lumpur, and the busts of twenty-eight Ameri- 
can presidents including Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy 
and Johnson. Among the many honors he has received 
is the Medal of Honor for Arts from the Austrian Par- 
liament, becoming only the seventh person since Beet- 
hoven to be so honored. 



The Project 



The Project selected by the Alumni Executive Council 
or the Centennial Club campaign is one befitting a his- 
orical observance, such as a Centennial Year, on a 
:ampus that identifies closely with America's pioneer 
leritage. One of the world's most noted sculptors. Dr. 
■elix W. de Weldon, has been commissioned to create 
1 statue that will symbolize the greatest pioneering 
Khievements of the 20th Century — America's ac- 
:omplishments in space exploration. This statue, to- 
gether with the existing statue of Daniel Boone which 
.lands in front of the Keen Johnson Building, will be 
i monument to the foresight, courage and imagination 
hat built our Nation and will capture the spirit that has 
:liiocted our University. The sculpture, to be located at 
he Park Drive entrance to the Powell Building, will 
:omplete the development of the University Center. 
iFhc bronze and stainless steel statue will tower twenty 
eet from its base of black Swedish granite. Plaques 
jn the statue's base will commemorate America's great- 
I'st moment in space exploration — Neil Armstrong's first 
itep upon the moon — and an inscription to denote the 
sculpture as a Centennial Year gift to the University from 
Its alumni and friends.

Alumnus Editorial 




As we mark the close of our 
Centennial Year, we cannot help 
but evaluate the past, to reflect 
upon those persons and institu- 
tions that played significant roles 
in Eastern's development. 

Reflecting on the past, how- 
ever, must not make us com- 
placent in the snug haven of our 
heritage; it should rather inspire 
us to new heights in our second 
century. 

We have certainly learned from 
our lessons in history. We have 
seen bold men take uncertain 
steps at the right times and sur- 
vive because they had the cour- 
age to make those decisions. We 
have seen our leaders branch out 
and initiate new programs to 
meet society's demands. History 
has taught us well.

must continue to change. Change 
is inherent with the passing of 
time and only if we change, how- 
ever cautiously, in order to ful- 
fill our purpose can we hope to 
remain strong. 

Future freshmen may be taking 
Space I; the sophomores Space 
11. The upperclassmen interested 
in science, or simply in surviving, 
may enroll in Solar Energy 368. 
The ever-present cafeteria may 
become a thing of the 20th cen- 
tury as campus capsule dispensa- 
ries become modern replace- 
ments. Weekend suitcasers may 
have a fling on Mars and practice 
telepathic learning on their way 
from the campus. The possibili- 
ties are endless. 

There will always be, of course, 
the less extreme basics — teach- 
ing, research, and service. Man 



will always need to know how to 
communicate with others; he will 
always be in constant search for 
the answers to his personal and 
social ills. From this standpoint, 
Century II will be no more than 
a sophisticated extension of the 
past 100 years. 

Century II, a bold mystery that 
some of us, through the miracle 
of modern medicine, may see 
completed. It begins, officially, 
on September 23, 1974, and as 
each days passes, it will reveal 
new vistas for Eastern Kentucky 
University, vistas that touch all of 
us who are or have been a part of 
the institution. 

We can only hope that Century 
II will be as exciting, dynamic, 
and fruitful as its predecessor. 
Only time can tell.

Notes . . . From The Editor's Desk 



THE CENTENNIAL YEAR Obser- 
vance reached an action-filled cli- 
max during a four-week period this 
spring, and Eastern's Alumni played 
a very major role in the significant 
events that virtually packed that 
time span. 

Of course, the entire year had 
been one of special activity. Cen- 
tennial lectures, concerts and other 
programs had marked the celebra- 
tion of higher education's first cen- 
tury on the Eastern campus, but all 
that was just prologue to the events 
that began April 20. 

That evening, 25 of the greatest 
athletes in the history of Eastern 
were honored at the Centennial 
Alumni Awards Banquet in the Keen 
Johnson Building. Each of the hon- 
orees received a commemorative 
award, dominated by a full-size Earl 
B. Combs model Louisville slugger. 
The Hall-of-Famer's bat reproduc- 
tions were turned from the timber 
of a white ash tree that died on the 
campus soon after the construction 
of the Burrier Building. Foresters 
on the campus and at Hillerich and 
Bradsby, who turned the bats, esti- 
mated the age of the tree at — ap- 
propriately — one hundred years. 

The next event was the Centen- 
nial Pageant, which provided an 
evening of wonderful nostalgia for 
all EKU grads who were able to see 
it. Likewise, the Centennial Ball, 
with its gala decorations and dance 
contests provided a wonderful re- 
membrance of how campus dances 
"used to be." 

But, the biggest weekend, for 
alumni and for the University, began 
Friday evening, May 10, and con- 
tinued through Saturday and Sun- 
day. 

Friday night was the occasion for 
one of the most truly memorable 
events in the 100 years of higher 
education on our alma mater's cam- 
pus. The university honored 101 
of the outstanding graduates of the 
institution, representing almost 
every field of endeavor. All but six 
of the honorees were present to re- 
ceive their awards. It took some 



mighty important business to keep 
them away. Karl Bays, for example, 
president of the American Hospital 
Supply Corporation, was in the 
Peoples' Republic of China explor- 
ing new markets for his company's 
products. 

The 101 honorees joined the 25 
athletic award recipients as the ini- 
tial entrants to a Hall of Distin- 
guished Alumni which has been 
established on the main floor of 
the Keen Johnson Building. Short 
biographical sketches of each hon- 
oree begin on page 59. 

Saturday was a double-barrelled 
day of activity, in the afternoon 
the Alumni Association dedicated 
and presented to the University its 
magnificent Centennial Year gift, 
the statuary by Dr. Felix W. de- 
Weldon saluting one of the great 
achievements of the last century, 
America's space exploration pro- 
gram. Members of the Centennial 
Club, who financed the project 
through their generous contribu- 
tions, were guests at a luncheon 
preceding the program and were 
seated in places of honor at the de- 
dication itself. 

The annual Alumni Day Dinner 
was held that evening, and a larger- 
than-usual crowd saw Leslie Ander- 
son, the first person to receive an 
Eastern diploma, receive the 1974 
Outstanding Alumnus Award. 

Sunday was Mothers' Day, and 
appropriately the date of baccalau- 
reate and commencement exer- 
cises. And, significantly for the 
alumni association, a record 1,861 
new graduates entered the alumni 
rolls. 

EKU 

AS IMPORTANT as ending the first 
century of higher education on the 
campus, is the fact that Eastern 
Kentucky University is embarking 
on its second hundred years. This 
second century is already present- 
ing challenges on Eastern, and, in 
fact, to all of higher education, that 
will require participation by alumni 
if these challenges are to be met. 



In the recent annual giving lett 
to Eastern alumni, J. W. "Spide 
Thurman spoke in plain terms abo 
the value of alumni support to tl 
University. He asked for the fii 
ancial assistance of Eastern's grai 
uates, announcing as a goal \\ 
exceeding of the annual gift 
$11.62 recorded last year. And, i 
asked for the help of EKU graduatij 
in recruiting good students for the 
alma mater, and for our alumni ■ 
expand their roles as ambassado 
of the institution. 

A large measure of Eastern's SU' 
cess in continuing to develop i 
programs of educational opportunii 
will depend on its alumni. Tfi 
University, as it enters its secor 
century, is fortunate that its body • 
alumni has grown to some 29,000,! 
sizable number that should be ab; 
to perform real services for the| 
alma mater. You may use the coii 
tribution card located betwee; 
pages 42-43 to indicate how muc 
you care for Eastern. 

EKU 

EASTERN LOST its only survivir 
former president March 5, when D 
W. F. O'Donnell succumbed follov 
ing a long illness. His death fo 
lowed by only three months tr 
passing of his gracious first ladl 
Mrs. O'Donnell, which was reportcj 
in the last issue of the Alumnus. \ 

Thousands of Eastern graduatii 
remember Dr. O'D, the first man i: 
retire from the Eastern presidenc 
as a warm, friendly person with i 
obviously sincere interest in them 

All associated with the Universi 
are much richer for the 33 yea 
Dr. O'Donnell was associated wilj 
Eastern. His 19-year tenure as pre 
ident is the longest of any EKU pre 
ident, and he spent the last 14 yea 
as the University's president-emer 
tus. 

Until his health began to fail i 
recent years, he was a regular spei 
tator for the home games of mo 
every sport, and took his place (| 
honor in the academic processior 
for commencement exercises. 

We will all miss him.

ABOUT THE COVER 

This issue's cover features the Centennial 
Year statue, a gift of the Alumni Association 
to the University. Cast in Rome by sculp- 
tor, Felix W. de Weldon, the 28-foot bronze 
figure is an adaption of the Astronaut's 
Medal, also created by de Weldon. The 
orbits of stainless steel interpret the tech- 
niques used in the United States' manned

THI 
CENTENNIAI 
WHIRLWINE 

By Ron G. Wolfe 

Two storms struck Richmond this pas 
spring. 

One came on April 3 in the form of ' 
ravaging tornado that left death and del 
struction along its capricious path. It did no| 
hit the campus. 

The other whirled through the campu 
some five weeks later in a more benevolen 
form — Alumni Weekend, the climax o 
Eastern's Centennial Year. It was the enc 
of a storm that had quietly started brewing 
some ten months earlier and increased ir| 
force to the final frenzy — alumni honors 
reunion classes, luncheons, a statue unveil-l 
ing, and graduation. 

One left heartache and bitter memories 
in its wake; the other left only joy and fond 
recollections. 

One's course was unpredictable and vi- 
olently fickle; the other was carefully plan- 
ned and executed. 

Both struck when the conditions were 
right and neither hit without prior warning.

The first was short in its dura- 
Dn, about three minutes according 
I one observer. The other was a 
?ar long and ended in a different 
nd of fury. The Centennial Year 
orm was more welcome although 
hen it was over, the planners took 
ilief from the fact that it couldn't 
rike again for another 100 years. 
During the 1973 Alumni Day ac- 
uities, President Robert R. Martin 
inounced that Eastern's Centen- 
|al Year was to begin in July. "We 
lill use the year to draw attention 
I the University around the state 
id across the nation," he said. 
At that time, his comment gave 
D inkling of the force which would 
)on begin to gather in intensity. 
A Centennial Committee set 
oout to make plans for the year, 
I build the activities into a de- 
;loping series of well-organized 
/ents which would mushroom into 
■stive proportions by Alumni 
/eekend. The committee, co- 
laired by Donald Feltner, Vice- 
'resident for Public Affairs, and 
)hn D. Rowlett, Vice-president for 
cademic Affairs, featured students, 
umni, faculty, and administration. 
, Initial plans called for designing 
Centennial Medallion which 
ould symbolize the 100 years of 
gher education on the Richmond 
iimpus. Covering a century full of 
gnificant details on two sides of 
:i egg-shaped medallion posed 
iHection problems for the commit- 
^e. 

The end result featured busts of 
3bert Breck, first chancellor of 
entral University from 1874-1880, 
id Ruric Nevel Roark, first presi- 
ent of Eastern from 1906-1909, on 



The Quiet. . . 

Before 
the Storm 



Even during the fury of Centennial Year 
festivities, students found time to enjoy 
the quietude of the ravine (top right). 
However, a ravaging fire in downtown 
Richmond in October ironically in- 
dicated the pace that was to mark the 
celebration of Eastern's 100th birthday.

one side. Above Dr. Breck the 
planners placed a cross symbolizing 
Central University's status as a 
Presbyterian institution and the 
Latin motto, "Lex Rex, Crux Lux," 
"The Law is our King, the Cross is 
our Light." Above Dr. Roark they 
placed the University's three-word 
motto, "Vision, Industry, Integrity." 
Two flames of knowledge were en- 
closed by a border around the 
busts with the words "Eastern Ken- 
tucky University" and the Roman 
numerals for 1874-1906. 

The other face of the medallion 
became a montage of three campus 
buildings — Old Central, Central 
University's main building, and 
the Keen Johnson Building and the 
John Grant Crabbe Library. On that 
side, the flames of knowledge 
flanked the dates which were de- 
termined most significant in the 
Centennial Year — 1874-1906-1974. 

Realizing that a University is a 
citadel for learning, the committee 
also planned a series of Centennial 
lectures with a wide variety of 
speakers and subjects. Dr. Margaret 
Lindsay of Columbia University, Dr. 
Jack Frymier of Ohio State, and Dr. 
Harry Broudy from the University 
of Illinois were among the noted 
lecturers. These became a series of 
refreshing showers as plans churned 
for more active weather. 

Other areas of the campus added 
to the brewing storm. "A Century 
of Memories," the theme for a 
"high pressure" Homecoming en- 
hanced the Centennial Year as it 
brought back graduates and re- 
minded all who attended of the 
University's rich heritage. Queen 
candidates used antique cars and 



Entertainers and lecturers like the Temp- 
tations (above right) Senator Henry 
"Scoop" Jackson (above left) and Vin- 
cent Price (right) kept the campus com- 
munity involved in the celebration. A 
Centennial Lecture Series was held in 
conjunction with the year's observance. 



costumes in the parade and the 
winning Baptist Student Union float 
announced, "Eastern, You're Not 
Getting Older, You're Getting Bet- 
ter." 

With amazing regularity, stu- 
dents, faculty, staff, administration 
and friends were reminded that the 
Centennial Year was in progress. 
The local paper carried a daily Cen- 
tennial Year seal on its front page. 
The Centennial Milestone was 
planned and executed, complete 
with a historical section. The East- 
ern Progress carried the Centennial 
seal weekly on either side of its 
nameplate while various campus 
offices stuck the familiar emblem to 
correspondence around the world. 

The alumni entered the weather 
picture in the fall when the Execu- 
tive Council voted to purchase a 
Centennial Year gift for presenta- 
tion to the University on Alumni 
Day. It was to be a 30-foot statue 
representative of space accomplish- 
ments by the United States. Fash- 
ioned by world-renown sculptor 
Felix de Weldon, creator of the 
famous Iwo Jima flag raising at the 
Marine Corps War Memorial, the 
statue is an adaption of the Astro- 
naut's Medal, which was also cre- 
ated by de Weldon. The statue of 
Daniel Boone was to represent the 
pioneer spirit which led higher 
education to the present; de Wel- 
don's statue was to symbolize 




man's journey into the future. 

Activity increased when 1974 a 
rived as the Jane Campbell Buili 
ing was formally dedicated Janua 
13 with a luncheon, program ar 
open house. It was an occasion 
honor three individuals who ha\ 
made significant contributions • 
Eastern. Miss Campbell, a membi 
of the Eastern music faculty f( 
more than 40 years and author ( 
the University's Alma Mater, die 
in 1967. Through her will, she le 
a sizable sum to be used to finanq 
music scholarships.

Activities like Homecoming (above) remained the same except to adopt Centennial 
themes, while the Energy Crisis (right) made the campus aware of a fuel shortage. 
"A Century of Memories", the Homecoming theme, helped recall Eastern heritage 
while Centennial Year planners expended their energies in publicizing the Uni- 
versity. 



>^lumni may remember his uncanny 
nack for recalling names of former 
tudents years after they had grad- 
iated. 
The day was a beautiful tribute 

the honorees and a Centennial 
Exhibition in the Giles Gallery add- 
i^d a bit of glitter to the occasion, 
rifled "A Century of American 
'aintings," it represented what has 
jeen perhaps the most dramatic 
listorical period in recorded time. 
\s the program indicated, "The im- 
pact of this century on America 
pnd on all its institutions is largely 
nterpreted by the artists of the 
imes. Thus, it is appropriate that 
his Centennial Exhibition be in- 
:luded as one of the major events 
if the Eastern Kentucky University 
Centennial Year." 

j A series of resolutions in Frank- 
i'ort and Washington called atten- 
jion to the storm in Richmond. 
Through the efforts of Senator VVal- 
er D. Huddleston, "A Century of 
Higher Education at Eastern Uni- 
/ersity" was entered in the Con- 
gressional Record on March 20, 
1974. Earlier, Tim Lee Carter had 
ntroduced a similar resolution into 
he House of Representatives, Res- 
olution No. 426. 

1 Both of these had been pre- 
:eded by the recognition in Frank- 
ort on January 23 when Represen- 

5UMMER, 1974 



tative Dwight Wells and Senator 
John Lackey, both of Richmond, 
introduced House Resolution No. 
23 and Senate Resolution No. 15 
into their respective chambers. Dur- 
ing the festivities. Wells' daughter, 
Terry, escorted President Robert R. 
Martin to the senate podium to sig- 
nal Eastern's recognition. 

A Centennial Year Pageant, "The 
Spirit of Eastern" also blew on the 
scene early in the new year. Eben 
Henson, director of the Pioneer 
Playhouse at Danville and his as- 
sistant, Constance Phelps were 
hired to work out the endless de- 
tails of dramatizing higher educa- 
tion's one hundred year history. 

The annual Spring Vacation in 
March offered the last quiet before 
the storm. The time had arrived for 
plans to materialize. 

Students began to prepare for a 
week-long Festival of the Arts in 
late April. There were operatic per- 
formances from the musical groups, 
a dance presentation from the 
Dance Theatre, and an art exhibi- 
tion from the outstanding student 
works. The musical comedy, "Kiss 
Me, Kate" was to highlight the 
week. 

Students worked late into spring 
evenings on unfinished paintings. 
Long hours on the Gifford stage 
were exhausting evidence that 





Q B U 



some weren't learning their lines. 
But, time would give all an oppor- 
tunity to perfect their works of art 
before they went on display. 

In the meantime, faculty and staff 
joined the hustle to weather the 
impending storm. Dr. Robert Sporre 
spent long hours readying "Kate" 
for opening night and then ended 
up playing a major role when one 
of the actors became ill. Daniel 
Shindelbower designed an intricate 
set for the pageant after which 
Chad Middleton and his buildings 
and grounds crew constructed it. 
Virginia Jinks loaned her dance stu- 
dents for thd pageant dance scenes 
while Mary Ann Walsh encouraged 
some of her drama students to take 
part in the pageant pop-ups. John 
Winnecke, the Radio-TV editor from 
Public Information, rounded up 
some willing Little Colonels who 
donated many hours to the success 
of the pageant. And few are aware 
of the long hours Loy Lee spent 
splicing tapes to give the pageant 
a professional sound. 

And, behind all these scenes, 
committees were at work trying to 
decide on the various honors that 
would be presented during Alumni 
Weekend. Twenty-five outstanding 
athletes were honored in late April, 
and a committee spent months go- 



ing through biographical data and 
seeing that those deserving were 
recognized. Another committee un- 
dertook selection of the 100 out- 
standing alumni in the history of 
the institution, a feat which left 
some unhappy, but everyone 
amazed at the completion of their 
mammoth task. 

The details were endless. En- 
gaging an orchestra for the Cen- 
tennial Ball, ordering makeup for 
the pageant, preparing programs 
for all the functions, contacting re- 
union classes for Alumni Day, or- 
dering tickets, flowers, host ribbons 
. . . testing the strength of the 
human mind to remember. 

But things continued to happen. 
The winds blew with greater in- 
tensity. On April 24-27, the Fes- 
tival of the Arts progressed with 
clockwork precision. "Kiss Me 
Kate" played to capacity crowds. 
The Dance Theatre's afternoon pre- 
sentation left one of the participat- 
ing students flabergasted, "We had 
people there," he smiled, "there 
were lots of people there!" Stu- 
dents, faculty, and friends attended 
the recitals and exhibits. An- 
nounced one proud artist, "I have 
three paintings in the exhibition, 
and I'm just a freshman! Pretty 
good, huh?" 

The University Center Board's 
presentations helped to heighten 
the awareness although they had 
sponsored various entertainment 
groups and lecturers throughout the 
year. Senator Henry "Scoop" jack- 
son and Vincent Price had lectured 
earlier and Bill Mauldin's arrival 
late in the year came as the storm 
mounted. The Cincinnati Conserv- 
atory Chorus, RSVP. — The Cole 
Porters, and Mac Frampton came 
when the Centennial winds were 
beginning to reach gale propor- 
tions. 

The 25 Outstanding Athletes were 
honored April 20 when former 
head coach of the Cleveland 
Browns, Blanton Collier, greeted 
the returning athletes. Even the 
awards presented to the winning 
athletes were Centennially signifi- 
cant. Each athlete received a Louis- 
ville Slugger bat mounted on a 




One highligtit of the year was the dedication of the )ane T. Campbell Build'

recognition also came from the various legislative bodies in Washington am 
Frankfort. Above, Terry Wells, daughter of Representative Dwight WeW'J

earlier.

THE EASTERN KENTUCKY UNIVERSITY ALUMNUI, 




After months of preparation, the Centennial Pageant, "The Spirit of Eastern", was 
presented May 1-2. Directed by Eben Henson (top right), the pageant traced the 
development of Eastern from Central University to the present. Cheerleaders lead 
students in some yells from old Central University (above), while two dancers and 
Oscar, the custodian, do a skit in the presentation. 



May 1-2 were the scheduled 
lates for the Centennial Pageant. 
Originally set for the Ravine, a tight 
chedule forced the move into 
Hiram Brock, and after months of 
echnical problems, the final days 
aw a flourish unequaled in any 
)ther centennial activities. The 
)pening night curtain opened on a 
et which still sported wet paint, 
'articipating students had re- 
learsed until the morning hours 
or the last week trying to master 
he timing involved in the presen- 
ation. They had fought long hours 
ind final exams to do their bit for 
listory. 

The question around campus 

vas, "Will the pageant make it?" 

|"he answer was obvious May 1 as 

■he dancers and actors retold the 

'listory of higher education on the 

ampus from Central University, 

hrough Walters Collegiate Institute 

p Eastern Kentucky University. 

hrough the use of scrims, slide 

irojections, film, dancing, and a 

:horus, the history came alive after 

II the frustration and doubt. "I 

ved through those years," said one 

Iderly retired faculty member, 

;that pageant meant a lot to me. 

especially remember those war 
ears and how everybody sacrificed 
3r the good of the country." 

For those who had survived the 
|;orm enough to stand, the Centen- 

ial Ball on May 3 offered an op- 

UMMER, 1974 



portunity to dance to the music 
of the Jimmy Dorsey Orchestra. 
Brilliant flowers, fountains, gold 
bunting and all the trimmings 
touched by the majesty and history 
of the Keen Johnson Building made 
the evening a refreshing formal in- 
terlude in the Centennial whirl- 
wind. 

Time moved on and so did the 
storm. The annual Senior Luncheon 
bade farewell to the 1861 graduates 
who were about to join some 26,- 
000 other alumni of Eastern. 

The flurry brought quiet specula- 
tion as to whether or not the 
campus could survive the full force 
of the storm that was scheduled to 
hit from May 10-12. Most felt that 
if the construction of things had 
been strong enough, everything 
could happen that was supposed to 
happen, and the events could prove 
to be golden centennial memories. 

May 10, 1974. The Keen Johnson 
Ballroom rumbled to the friendly 
thunder of 101 Outstanding Alumni, 
their families, and friends. They 
represented 20 states and were 
chosen from hundreds of nomina- 
tions reviewed by a special sub- 
committee. Their final selections 
were based on records of the 
Alumni Association, interviews, and 
extensive research over a period of 
several months. 

They represented Walters Col- 
legiate Institute, Eastern Kentucky 




State Normal School, Eastern Ken- 
tucky State Normal School and

Dr. John Rowlett, Vice-president 
for Academic Affairs reminded the 
group of their place in history, and 
Art Lund, '37, for many years a 
familiar face on Broadway, pro- 
vided a musical salute to his co- 
horts. His musical trip down mem- 
ory lane included three of his 
most famous songs, "Blue Skies," 
"Mam'selle," and "Joey." 

Ethel Marie Adams and her hus- 
band John, from Jeff in Perry Coun- 
ty, accepted their awards as hus- 
band and wife. They were the first.

Rowlett Views University 'In The 



(Editor'i Note: The following address was 
delivered at the Centennial Alumni Awards 
Dinner by EKU academic vice president Dr. 
John D. Rowlett. It is printed here to provide 
our readers with a historical perspective of 
the University.) 

As WE APPROACH Ihc conclusion of 
•^ this Centennial year, it is proper 
that we pause ancJ view Eastern Ken- 
tucky University in the perspective of 
its heritage. We neeci to feel, to sense, 
and to understand that the development 
of higher education on this campus has 
been for a hundred years a continuous 
and continuing process, and that East- 
ern Kentucky University is the capstone 
of these first hundred years. This Uni- 
versity, as it has emerged over a full 
century, had its beginnings with the 
foundation of Central University which 
was chartered March 3, 1873, opened its 
doors on September 22, 1874, and 
merged with Centre College in August 
1901. Central University was a product 
of the bitterness and divisiveness that 
followed the Civil War, and the re- 
sponse of Southern Presbyterians was to 
establish their own University. And 
these founders had great dreams — a 
university with four colleges, a Theo- 
logical Department, and preparatory 
schools at Middlesboro, lackson, Eliza- 
bethtown, and on the Richmond cam- 
pus. The College of Medicine was lo- 
cated in Louisville and produced 900 
graduates. The College of Dentistry, also 
in Louisville, graduated 406 dentists. The 
College of Philosophy, Letters, and 
Science, located on the Richmond 
campus had 300 graduates and the Col- 
lege of Law, also in Richmond, had 15 
graduates. In its 27 years of existence 
over 8,000 students enrolled in the Col- 
leges and preparatory schools of the 
University. 

The campus at Richmond did not re- 
main vacant with the departure of Cen- 
tral University. Walters Collegiate In- 
stitute, a classical preparatory school for 
boys, was chartered in September 1901, 
and the continuity of higher education 
on this campus was unbroken. The In- 
stitute was small, but it produced out- 
standing graduates, many of whom con- 
tinued their higher education at the 
finest universities in this nation. 

Walters Collegate Institute had a short 
life for in 1904 the pressures began to 
mount for the establishment of state 
normal schools for the preparation of 
teachers, and in 1906 the General As- 
sembly passed a bill establishing two 
institutions — Eastern Kentucky State 
Normal School to be located in Normal 
School District Number 1 and Western 
Kentucky State Normal School, to be 
located in Normal School District Num- 
ber 2. On March 21, 1906, Governor 
Beckham signed the bill and it became 



law. The law did not spell out the 
locations for these two schools, and 
there was predictable competition 
among the communities of Kentucky. 
Richmond was selected as the site for 
Normal School Number 1, and Bowling 
Cireen was chosen for the location of 
Normal School Number 2. 

These were modest, single-purpose 
institutions. They were charged with 
upgrading the preparation of teachers 
and the basic admission requirement 
was the completion of the eighth grade. 
Eastern Kentucky State Normal School 
demonstrated from the onset a char- 
acteristic flexibility and adaptability. 
Courses of study were squarely related 
to the educational needs of teachers — 
review courses, one, two, and three year 
certificate courses which moved the 
institution forward to the point where in 
1922 Eastern became a four year institu- 
tion and was redesignated as the Eastern 
Kentucky State Normal School and 
Teachers College. In 1930, the institu- 
tion's name was changed to Eastern Ken- 
tucky State Teachers College and in 
1948 it became Eastern Kentucky State 
College. On February 26, 1966, Gov- 
ernor Breathitt signed a bill renaming 
the institution Eastern Kentucky Univer- 
sity. Each change in name reflected real, 
substantive changes that had occurred 
within the institution. 

A succession of outstanding leaders 
have guided the development of the 
institutions that have culminated in 
Eastern Kentucky University: Chancellors 
Breck and Blanton and Presidents Roark, 
Crabbe, Coates, Donovan, O'Donnell, 
and Martin. During these hundred years 
there have been periods of financial 
depression and inflation, periods of 
expansion, of declining and even stabil- 
ity of enrollments; there have been 
wars both declared and undeclared; 
there have been technological and so- 
cial changes, some almost impercep- 
tible in the days of Central University, 
but which have accelerated to a rate 
in the 1960's and 1970's that they are 
almost impossible to comprehend. In 
these hundred years we have developed 
a mobility that permits us to move free- 
ly and quickly about this country and 
to other continents, and in the course 
of these hundred years man's thirst for 
knowledge has steadily increased, and 
the world in which we live and work 
has valued and rewarded those who 
prepared themselves at institutions of 
higher education. 

Many of those who grew up in the 
years of the great depression found 
themselves in entirely new roles in the 
early 1940's. They were in defense 
plants, on the farms, in other critical 
occupations and professions, and many 
of the young able-bodied males were 
learning first hand the meaning of

such names as Guadalcanal, Iwo Jima, 
Bizerte, Salerno, and Normandy. Col- 
lege campuses were all but vacant, but 
with the ending of this war, the cam- 
puses began to teem with a new type of 
student, seasoned and matured beyond 
his years. Through the C. I. Bill of 
Rights these veterans were given the op- 
portunity to go to college without the 
financial burdens that faced their older 
brothers and sisters in the thirties — 
they had the opportunity to go to col- 
lege and make something of themselves 
and they did — by the millions — and 
colleges and and universities have never 
been the same. For the most part these 
veterans were the sons of the common 
people, people who worked hard from 
early to late, whose fundamental goal 
was to provide, food, clothing, and 
shelter for their families, and anything 
beyond was considered a luxury, espe- 
cially the thought of a college educa- 
tion. Higher education has become 
more accessible to all, not just the 
veteran, from the mid-forties to this 
very day. And those of you who be- 
came parents in the forties and the 
fifties joined with other parents in this 
Commonwealth, because you believed 
and valued higher education, and you 
sent to us beginning in the 1960's and 
continuing into the 1970's your most 
precious possessions — your sons and 
your daughters. And these young stu- 
dents came to us in great numbers, with 
enrollments increasing almost fourfold 
since 1960, with a 1973 fall enrollment 
that was in excess of 11,000 students. 
And ladies and gentlemen, this institu- 
tion responded, and the most visible 
evidence of this response is a physical 
plant that has been developed to pro- 
vide for the instructional and other 
functions of the university, and for the

adequate housing of our students. It is 
a marvelous plant that has been in- 
creased in value by more than 100 mil- 
lion dollars since 1960. These buildings, 
in a setting that can only be described 
as one of beauty, represent the physical 
strength of this university. You have 
seen the visible Eastern as you have 
strolled about this campus today — but 
there are other dimensions to this uni- 
versity that have been developed in 
response to the challenge of the 1960's, 
dimensions that are not nearly so ob- 
vious, but are of great significance. For 
it was in the mid-sixties that the institu- 
tion received university status and en- 
tered its greatest period of academic 
program expansion. The university was 
divided into Colleges of Arts and Sci- 
ences, Applied Arts and Technology, 
Business, Education, and Central Uni- 
versity College in order to provide for 
efficient and effective instruction and 
program development. And with this 
organization the university reaffirmed 
its commitment to the disciplines and 
programs that one would expect to find 
at a university and provided the frame- 
work for new developments. A Graduate 
School was created to provide for new 
and expanding graduate programs As I 
read the history of higher education on 
this campus I am firmly convinced that 
this organization, conceived not by a 
committee, but by President Martin, sup- 
ported by his office and the Board of 
Regents, and implemented by the 
faculty and staff of this university, is 
one of the most important decisions 
that has ever been made in terms of its 
impact on higher education on this 
campus. This academic organization 
encouraged, almost demanded, that we 
expand our vision to develop programs 
of study reflective of the breadth of stu- 
dent interests and abilities, and con- 
sistent with the opportunities and needs 
developing in our society. It forced us 
to break traditional mind-sets about 
populations to be served, how they 
might be served, and societal needs that 
ought to be met. We recognized, for 
example, that law enforcement officers, 
particularly those in the smaller com- 
munities, were often no better off, in 
terms of preparation for their profes- 
sions, than the school teachers who en- 
rolled in the normal school in 1906. 
Not only were these individuals anxious, 
almost begging for an opportunity to 
study and to learn, but society was be- 
coming increasingly conscious of crime 
and violence and demanded that some- 
thing be done about it. This university 
responded to this challenge in 1965 and 
today we have one of the largest law 
enforcement programs in the nation. 
We responded with new programs in 
social work, traffic safety, recreation, 
business, special education, political 



science, nursing, and in a variety of 
technical fields — and in the more 
traditional program areas there were 
expansions of instructional, public serv- 
ice, and research roles. The university 
had the posture of a tightly coiled 
spring, ready to unleash its strength 
with confidence and certainty — and it 
did. Through our Central University 
College we organized and administered 
the general education program to be 
completed by all students irrespective 
of field of study. And we packaged 
many of our programs in modules, not 
unlike the normal school, and in the 
technical and applied fields a student 
may earn an associate degree with two 
years of study and go out into the real 
world and earn a respectable living or 
the student may continue on in a bac- 
calaureate program without loss of 
credit and then to a masters program. 
We call this approach the career ladder 
— but it is not really a new concept — 
for at this institution we have always 
been concerned with preparing individ- 
uals for careers. We see no conflict in 
the goal of providing for the intellectual 
development of a student and at the 
same time equipping the student to 
enter society as a useful and productive 
citizen. 

The uniqueness about this university, 
the end product of 100 years of effort, 
is its breadth and diversity. We are in 
effect an open university — our pro- 
grams reflect an awareness that students 
come to us with wide ranges of abilities 
and interests. We continue to grow and 
to serve while many of our sister institu- 
tions have experienced substantial en- 
rollment losses. This continued growth 
at Eastern is attributable, in large meas- 
ure, to the plan devised in the mid- 
sixties, the leadership that has been pro- 
vided in the implementation of the plan, 
and the hard work of the administration 
and faculty. Eastern is recognized na- 
tionally as one of the leaders among the 
300 plus regional universities of our 
type, as an institution that is alert, 
responsive, flexible, and effective in its 
efforts. 

Eastern Kentucky University today is 
the summation and the blending of the 
efforts of individuals such as Singleton 
P. Walters and other supporters who 
saw to it that Richmond would be the 
site for an institution of higher educa- 
tion, to the administrators and to the 
faculty and to the Regents and to the 
alumni and students of all of these in- 
stitutions, and to those who have pro- 
vided the financial support, private and 
public, that has been essential for the 
operation of an institution. 

This evening we are assembled to pay 
honor and tribute, to recognize the out- 
standing living alumni of higher educa- 
tion on this campus. You are a dis- 



tinctive and distinguished group of 
individuals who have demonstrated 
through the quality of your accomplish- 
ments and service that excellence trans- 
cends all fields of endeavor, and all 
walks of life. However dissimilar your 
careers may be, you share at least two 
things in common, you are alumni of 
higher education on this campus, and 
you have been singled out for special 
recognition because of that which you 
have achieved. You are living testi- 
monials of the quality of higher educa- 
tion on this campus. 

It has been a rewarding experience to 
me this year to read through the musty 
catalogs and other documents that de- 
scribe the evolution of higher educa- 
tion on this campus. This process has 
both an inspirational and a sobering 
effect. Great dreams are charted in 
these documents, some were realized, 
others were not. One must conclude, I 
think, that an institution of higher 
education, if it is to remain alive, must 
renew itself, and this renewal is achieved 
best by continuing challenges, and the 
growth that occurs as a response to 
these challenges. An institution, like an 
individual, is in serious danger if it 
rests on its laurels, its past accomplish- 
ments. It must respond to those chal- 
lenges that present themselves, and it 
must seek out new challenges. 

This institution is ready and poised 
for entrance into its second century of 
service. We are physically strong, we 
have an energetic and dynamic presi- 
dent, we have an outstanding Board of 
Regents, we are academically well 
qualified as a faculty, we have a broad 
base of academic programs that test and 
develop the intellect and that prepare 
students for productive lives — and the 
students who choose to study with us 
know this — and so do our alumni. 
And we have the capacity to work to- 
gether, and we have a hundred years of 
experience based on a solid foundation 
of strong character, integrity, and hard 
work. 

The founders of this institution would 
be proud of Eastern Kentucky University 
if they could see it today — they would 
see evidence of their handiwork, of 
their thoughts, and of their efforts. For 
in the final analysis, this institution for 
these hundred years has been built up- 
on the lives of people, dedicated people 
who felt that it was important to provide 
on a beautiful campus in Richmond, 
Kentucky expanding opportunities for 
higher education for the citizens of this 
Commonwealth. 

This is a commitment that has en- 
dured for a full century, and those who 
will continue this commitment through- 
out our second hundred years will find 
a strong, and in my judgment, an in- 
destructable foundation.

tenth decade, they display a kind ol 
zest and enthusiasm that makes 
such occasions beam happiness. 
Both came with their wives and 
families to mark the occasion and 
make the Centennial Year more 
meaningful. For Mr. Anderson, later 
developments were to recognize 
his pioneering spirit and contribu- 
tions to his University and his com- 
munity. For Mr. Giftbrd, the week- 



end was an opportunity to show his 
wife, Marjorie, the campus during 
her first visit. 

As the reunion classes held their 
luncheons and caught up on years 
of details, the storm planners were 
keeping an eye on the weather 
which featured gray clouds and 
gusts of wind which could have 
threatened the unveiling of the 
statue which was scheduled for 
afternoon ceremonies.

(Editor's note: The following is the address 
delivered by Sculptor Felix W, deWeldon at 
the dedication ol the University's Centennial 
Year Statue which he created.) 



President Martin commissioned me to 
create this astronaut statue only seven 
months ago. This heroic size statute on 
the campus of Eastern Kentucky Uni- 
versity is based on my early original 
design of the General Thomas D. White 
trophy commissioned by Dr. Thomas Mc- 
Knew of the National Geographic Society 
which the society has presented each 
year to the Outstanding Astronauts. The 
trophy was dedicated by President 
John F. Kennedy in the White House in 
1961. In 1969 the medal was presented 
to Neil Armstrong, Edwin Aldrin and 
Michael Collins. 

As I have said, this trophy was created 
in 1961 — one year before the moon pro- 
gram was begun though the trophy 
shows the landing on the moon. Upon 
making the presentation to the astro- 
nauts. Dr. Leonard Carmichael, director 
of research for* National Geographic 
Society said "de Weldon had prophetic 
foresight in creating this trophy and 
medal showing the moon landing eight 
years before the landing was accomp- 
lished." Aldrin then spoke up saying 
"There is still another object shown in 
the trophy which we have not yet 
achieved — the space shuttle." The 
artist and writer can often think ahead 
of the explorer. He can depict scenes 
which no human eye will ever witness, 
either because of the danger involved 
or the remoteness in time and space. 
Jules Verne wrote the book "Journey to 
the Moon" nearly 120 years ago. In 
reading it we may find many predic- 
tions similar to the real trip to the moon 
in 1969. 

This bronze statue with the orbits and 
its base of granite stands 28 feet high. 
It shows a young and powerful Ameri- 
can with his strong muscular arm

statue ceremonies which saw sculp- 
tor Felix de Weldon tell them that 
the statue "symbolizes the yearning 
of man to go beyond his limita- 
tions and do what seems to be im- 
aossible; to reach out for the stars." 
As Centennial Club members 
;tood in awe of the mammoth 
statue which now completes the 
University Center Complex, other 
returning graduates took time to 
find more insignificant reminders of 
the past. Two former coeds from 



the 1924 class walked through the 
ravine and recalled its pleasant as- 
sociations. "This is my tree," said 
one, "after all, I received two pro- 
posals of marriage under it!" Did 
she accept either one? "No," she 
smiled, "but I'll never forget those 
two. I guess the Ravine made them 
different." 

The buzzing continued as the 
classes and their friends gathered 
for the annual Alumni Banquet on 
Saturday evening. For Dr. Robert R. 



Martin, EKU president, it was spe- 
cial because his 1934 class had re- 
turned to share memories. To Lee 
Thomas Mills, '57, it was special be- 
cause as president of the Alumni 
Association, he presided over the 
festivities. To June Carol Bonny 
Williams, '66, it was special because 
she was to perform two musical 
selections for the occasion. The 
classes were recognized and pre- 
sented pins and certificates as one 
unsuspecting graduate was about

rocket. Above him are the orbits, the 
earth and the moon with the orbits 
which were launched at Cape Kennedy 
circling the earth, to the moon and 
around it and finally landing on the 
moon and the return to earth. The 
left hand receives the space shuttle 
after it has returned from the space sta- 
tion. The feet of the man standing on 
the dolphins and the waves portray the 
landing in the ocean upon return to 
earth. This method of returning from 
space will continue until the space 
shuttle becomes operative. The highly 
polished granite base has a carved 
medallion showing the astronauts with 
the American flag on the moon. Below 
the medallion is the quotation of Arm- 
strong "That's one small step for man — 
one giant leap for mankind." The gi- 
gantic efforts symbolized in this monu- 
ment are due to the research of sci- 
entists and tens of thousands of diligent 
men and women who worked in and 
for the space agency. The American 
people gave the means and support to 
accomplish the landing on the moon. 
To me this monument represents the 
yearning of man to go beyond his 
limitations, to do what seems to be the 
impossible and to reach out for the 
stars. 

On July 21, 1969 the first man from 
earth stepped out on the barren rocks 
of the moon. Apollo eleven marked the 
greatest triumph of exploration in the 
history of mankind, showing that man 
not only could reach the moon but 
could survive there. The moon is not a 
friendly place — airless, waterless and 
lifeless. Yet it represents an ideal site 
for a scientific research base and a step- 
ping stone to the planets. Our explora- 
tion of outer space can only begin at 
the moon. The space shuttle will com- 
bine the performance of aircraft and 
spacecraft in one vehicle. The sky lab 
is the first orbiting workshop and highly 
sophisticated space station which will 
be serviced from the ground by the 
space shuttle. There will eventually be 



a sky lab cluster harnessing the sun's 
energy and operated by rotating crews 
of astronauts. Experience gained in as- 
sembling these space stations in orbit 
will bring nearer the day when man 
will set out for the planets, since it is 
only by assembly procedures that huge 
vehicles will supply the eleven tons of 
hydrogen, food and water for each three 
men for every year of flight. Only then 
can interplanetary expeditions be 
launched. The mercury flights have 
proved that man can perform useful 
functions in space and it is probably 
that in all future manned space mis- 
sions, control will be aboard. Man 
stores energy and can function for a 
relatively long period of time without 
external power. He is more difficult to 
put out of commission by minor injury 
than is a machine. 

For example, let us remember the 
Apollo 13 mission when Lovell, Swigert 
and Haise made their way back to earth 
after the on-board catastrophe: At the 
National Geographic Society Luncheon 
when Astronauts Armstrong, Aldrin and 
Collins received the award medal, my 
wife Margot was seated next to Collins 
at the table. (At that time Collins was 
Mason between the state department 
and the White House). Margot told him 
that, in her opinion the most important 
achievement in space was that Lovell, 
Swigert and Haise on Apollo 13 were 
able to return to earth after the mission 
was aborted due to the explosion of 
one of the oxygen tanks in the service 
module. It was a long, anxious and 
gruelling flight back to earth — short 
of water and oxygen. The crewmen 
were forced to use lunar module as a 
"life boat." Collins told my wife that, 
had the explosion occurred 15 minutes 
later — after they had reached the dark 
side of the moon and out of com- 
munication with earth and the Houston 
Space Center, these men could not 
have been brought back but would 
have been lost forever orbiting the 
moon. 



For the purpose of space travel man 
must take his environment along with 
him. He cannot be engineered. There 
are of course many unknown space 
hazards. On earth man is protected by 
the atmosphere from too much ultra- 
violet radiation. In space ultraviolet oc- 
curs in full range of lethal intensity. 
Tests have shown also that fatigue in a 
man performing such tasks as the astro- 
nauts will perform can be manifested in 
several ways, including an increase in 
range of indifference. He will allow in- 
creasingly greater error tolerance, and 
this may occur without his awarneness. 
Loss in timing as he becomes fatigued 
will make him less able to program 
efficiently. He may execute the right 
response but at the wrong time. There 
can also be a disintegration of percep- 
tion where he will fail to note objects 
needing attention if they are not in the 
center of his vision. Because of defi- 
ciency in the space cabin there will be 
greater error tolerance occurring without 
the astronaut's awareness. 

There is no sound in space. It is ab- 
solutely quiet because of the absence 
of atmosphere to propagate sound. 
There is no sound barrier and no thun- 
derclaps would be heard. A landslide 
terminating at one's feet would make 
no sound. 

The moon and orbital stations may 
well be used as starting bases for inter- 
planetary flights to Mars, Venus and 
beyond. We are no longer bound to 
our home planet earth. 

I sincerely thank Dr. Martin for giving 
me this opportunity to create this astro- 
naut statue for his university's 100th an- 
niversary celebration and I hope it will 
be a continuous inspiration to the stu- 
dents in all the years to come. 

It gives me the greatest pleasure to 
present to you President Martin this 
bronze medal symbolizing space ex- 
ploration.

'This monument . . . 
represents a 
yearning of man 
to go beyond 
his limitations/ 

to be named the Outstanding 
Alumus for 1974. 

The award went to Leslie Ander- 
son, '09, the first student to offi- 
cially receive a diploma from East- 
ern Kentucky State Normal School. 
There was the standing ovation 
from appreciative colleagues who 
realized that he had taken the first 
step that some 26,000 others were 
to repeat through the years. How 
apt that a student with such his- 
toric implications could be hon- 
ored by his Alma Mater during a 
year when history blew up a storm! 
"He's on cloud nine tonight," said 
his sister-in-law, "I don't imagine 
he'll be down for awhile. He's very 
proud of this." 

It was indeed a significant time 
for Eastern Kentucky University; it 
was, in short, the full fury of a 
memorable storm. 

The south plaza of the Powell Building 
(above) was the scene of the afternoon 
dedication of the statue given to the Uni- 
versity as a Centennial Year gift by the 
Alumni Association. Lee Thomas Mills, (be-

THE EASTERN KENTUCKY UNIVERSITY ALUMNU 



The Alumni Banquet 




Sunday was a day for different 
alunnni . . . alumni-to-be. Some 
1,860 seniors had only hours to go 
before they would begin their trek 
through history as Eastern Kentucky 
University graduates. Morning bac- 
calaureate services featured Dr. Ir- 
vin E. Lunger, president of Transyl- 
vania University in Lexington. The 
commencement exercises brought a 
standing room only crowd of some 
12,000 to Alumni Coliseum to hear 
Lieutenant Governor Julian Carroll 
address the graduates. Honorary 
doctorates were presented to Car- 
roll, de Weldon, Board of Regent 
members Earle B. Combs, Rich- 
mond, and William Wallace, Lex- 
ington, Dr. Lunger, and Mrs. Mary 
Jo Cheens Hill, Louisville. 

Earlier in the afternoon, some 21 
graduating Reserve Officers Train- 
ing Corps cadets were commis- 
sioned into the armed forces, fol- 
lowing an address by Lieutenant 
General E. B. Roberts, commanding 
general of the U.S. Sixth Army, San 
Francisco, and one of the EKU 
alumni honored Friday evening. 

The Centennial Year storm began

to abate. One more brief recur- 
rence is predicted for September 
22, 1974, the actual date upon 
which Central University, the first 
predecessor of Eastern opened its 
doors. 

"Make no little plans," quoted 
President Martin in 1960 when he 
was inaugurated as Eastern's sixth 
president. As it turned out, he 
could very will have been talking 
about the Centennial Year storm 
which breezed through the campus 
for some 12 months. 

The weathermen and women 
who planned the storm had sur- 
vived the high pressures, low pres- 
sures, the barometric pressure and 
all the pressures that come with 
recounting 100 years in one. It 
was, however, a storm that left 
pleasant memories in its wake. 

Unlike the dreaded tornado, the 
Centennial storm will not occur 
again for another century . . . 
time enough to prepare for another 
assault. 

2074 . . . springtime . . . another 
storm is in full swing. The Pioneers 
will be a legend of a glorious past; 




those present will revel in their 
history and the storm it has cre- 
ated. The only difference will be 
they will have twice as much force 
in their storm . . . and none of us 
will know how they weather it. 



SUMMER, 1974

Leslie Anderson, '09 

First Graduate Named Outstanding Alumnus 



THE CENTENNIAL YEAR has 
proved to be a significant time 
in the development of Eastern Ken- 
tucky University, a time when we 
have reflected upon our past and 
the people who have signaled prog- 
ress in the development of higher 
education on the campus. 

Leslie Anderson, '09, the 1974 
Outstanding Alumnus, is one of 
those key people who officially 
started the procession of some 26,- 
000 graduates when he received the 
first diploma ever awarded in formal 
ceremonies from Eastern. 

Mr. Anderson began his long ca- 
reer in education one year before 
he came to Eastern. In 1906 he 
taught what was then called "com- 
mon school" near Round Knob. 
From there he moved on to Sugar 
Grove in 1907 before entering East- 
ern Kentucky State Normal School 
the same year. 

He became principal and teacher 
al Kings Mountain in 1908 and fol- 
lowing his graduation in 1909, he 
became principal and teacher for 
the Somerset City Schools. 

In 1910, he worked as a civil serv- 
ice clerk for the U.S. Census Bureau 
in Washington, D.C., but returned 
to teaching briefly in 1911 for the 
Texarkana, Arkansas City Schools. 
This was to be his last year in edu- 
cation. 

In 1911 he became a solicitor for 
the Fire and Casualty Insurance 
Company in Texarkana, and contin- 
ued in the insurance business for the 
next 64 years with only a two-year 
interruption to serve in Europe dur- 
ing World War I. 

In 1922 he formed his own com- 
pany in Texarkana, and since that 
time, he has distinguished himself 
as one of the outstanding men in 
his field. For 43 years he has been 
on the job in his own company and 
as he approaches 88 years of age, he 
still works daily in that business. 

Mr. Anderson's loyalty and ded- 
ication to Eastern have been obvious 
over the years. He has provided the 




Alumni Association with numerous 
historical artifacts which provide in- 
sight into the development of the 
University. His freshman biology 
notebook, complete with leaves 
from the ravine, came to the associ- 
ation last year. His diploma, the 
first "official" one, hangs in Presi- 
dent Martin's office. 

He is a member of the Century 
Club and has represented the Uni- 
versity at college and university 
presidential inaugurations in the 
southwest. He is one of the last 
three remaining Pioneers, a group of 
early graduates who organized 
themselves some 20 years ago. 

Mr. Anderson has also distin- 
guished himself in his civic organ- 
izations as well. He is a past com- 
mander of the Texarkana American 
Legion Post, the American Legion 
Local Post historian, and a member 
and director of the Texarkana Ki- 
wanis Club, an organization whose 
meetings he has attended weekly 
over the past 42 years without a 
single absence! 

In 1908, he wrote in the college 
newspaper, "The Student," a pub- 
lication he served as business man- 
ager, "The world has a right to ex-

Gifford, pose for the alumni camera ir

pect every man to be a producer." 
For nearly nine decades he has been 
producing in business, in his com- 
munity, in every aspect of his life.

Graduation: 

The Storm Subsides 




Graduation, complete with an SRO crowd, took great 
preparation. A collar adjustment (above) proved to be 
a bit easier than the hood assist that got caught up in 
the spring breeze (above right, right, and below right). 
After all the preparation, proud graduates file solemnly 
into Alumni Coliseum (bottom) to receive that long- 
awaited degree.

1,861 New Alumni 




Some graduates had to search for their places on the 
program (above), but once the ceremonies started 
some sat pensive among the 1861 (top left) while one, 
the 28,000th graduate stood to receive recognition 
for his unique place in Eastern's history (below).

ALUMNI HONOR ROIL

THE EASTERN KENTUCKY UNIVERSITY ALUMNUS 




all of Distinguished Alumni 



ERTAINLY ONE of the highlights of the Centennial Year 
&ii observance has been the initiation of a Hall of Distin- 
ijuished Alumni. Located on the main floor of the Keen Johnson 
5uilding, the Hall received its first 126 entrants during the spring's 
Zentennial Athletic and Centennial Alumni Awards Banquets. 

Enshrined in the Hall were 25 of the greatest athletes in 
iastern's history and 101 distinguished alumni from other 
ields, representing Eastern and its campus predecessor, 
Walters Collegiate Institute. 

The banquet hall of the Keen Johnson Building was jammed 
\pril 20 for the induction of the athletic honorees and again 
DP May 9 when the alumni awards were announced. Emble- 
Tiatic of their honors, the athletes received a plaque with 
an Earle B. Combs model bat turned from a 100-year-old 
:ampus white ash tree and an engraved plate citing them for 
"Outstanding contributions to Eastern Kentucky University 
through accomplishments in athletics." 

Honorees at the Centennial Alumni Awards banquet received 
a cast bronze centennial medallion, set in crystal lucite and encased 
in a leather presentation case. 





The athletic honorees represented seven sports, with football 
with eight and baseball and basketball with five each leading 
the way. Earle B. Combs, the baseball Hall-of-Famer, was the 
oldest recipient — he is a product of the normal school — 
while 1973 graduate and NFL Rookie-of-the-Vear Wally Cham- 
bers was the youngest. Also included in the group were two 
former National Basketball Association Rookie-of-the-Year 
selections, Fred Lewis and Jim Baechtold. 

The 101 alumni honorees returned to their alma mater 
from 20 states and represented more than 25 fields of 
accomplishment. Youngest among the honorees was 
Rupert Stephens, a 1964 graduate with a key role in the 
nation's space program. And the earliest graduate honored 
was Leslie Anderson, the first person to receive an Eastern 
diploma, in 1909. 
The special selection sub-committees of the Centennial 
Committee had monumental tasks. Both the athletic and alumni 
selection bodies screened hundreds of nominations, conducted 
interviews and extensive research before making their final deci- 
sions. The persons presented on the following pages represented 
their selections for the initial entrants into the Hall of Distinguished 
Alumni.
